Showings!! July 29- August 4: The Lobster is what would happen if Wes Anderson set about doing Franz Kafka, with a hefty dash of George Orwell thrown into the mix: surreal, comic, sad, strange, beautiful, sublime. (Charlie Kaufman comes to mind, too, but let's not complicate matters.) Set in a disquietingly serene not-far-from-now, the movie centers on the recent widower David (Colin Farrell, remarkable). He's a bit of a milquetoast who is just checking into the Hotel, a place people go after they have lost a spouse.

Welcome to the Town of Mesilla!
Mesilla ("Little Tableland") is the best-known and most visited historical community in Southern New Mexico.
The historic town of Mesilla lies just west of Las Cruces along I-10 and is called New Mexico’s Best Vacation Getaway. It is the epitome of small town charm at its finest, serving as a great location for afternoon shopping and dining, where award winning cafes and restaurants and unique stores surround the town focal point of the historic Plaza. Visitors often enjoy the quiet ambiance of the Plaza with the peaceful back drop of the San Albino Basilica. Just north of town visitors have even more choices to shop and dine, in what’s known as the town’s Mercado area.
The history of the Town boasts everything from the Civil War to Billy the Kid. Visitors can get a brief lesson in history by visiting the Gadsden Museum or by taking a tour with La Morena Walking Tours.
For extra fun, tourists may enjoy the multitude of events that occur throughout the year. As Mesilla was once a part of Mexico, the Town is known for its annual Cinco de Mayo and Diez y Seis de Septiembre Fiestas, and the Gadsden Purchase Re-enactment which celebrate significant dates in the Mexican culture. The Town also hosts several events throughout the year including a weekend long celebration of Dia de Los Muertos, Jazz and Mariachi concerts, in the plaza and the popular lighting of luminarias on Christmas Eve.
Art galleries, entertaining events, rich history, unique shops and delicious cuisine are just a few staples that Old Mesilla has to offer.
