The Big Deal: Passes to ‘Bless Me, Ultima’

by Gila Espinoza 20 Feb 2013 7:41 AM

For this Big Deal you bring the date, we bring the movie. Winners get a pass for the upcoming film Bless Me, Ultima. Pass will admit two and is good for the run of the engagement.

The film, which opens nationwide Friday, is based on the award-winning novel by Rudolfo Anaya.  The protagonist in Bless Me, Ultima is Antonio Marez, a young boy growing up in New Mexico during World War II. When Ultima a curandera, or folk healer, comes to stay with Antonio and his family, she introduces him to a spiritual world that has him questioning his traditional beliefs. And when people start questioning tradition, you know some people aren’t going to take it well.

You might also want to check out our other offering this week: tickets to see The Texas Voices’ Salutation of the Dawn: A Celebration of the Day’s Journey into Night. Winners of the Big Deal are selected from our e-newsletter subscribers, so if you are not a subscriber yet you can take care of that here.
