The selection will include comedy, drama, action-packed films and when available, Spanish language films with English subtitles. Patrons will be able to enjoy traditional concession items such as popcorn, sodas and candies as they sit back and enjoy the award winning films showcasing incredible talent from Spanish speaking countries.

CineAméricas features bilingual staff, and in addition to screening films will showcase film memorabilia and provide Spanish language music for the enjoyment of its patrons. CineAméricas will also serve as a host to community organizations who wish to distribute Spanish language informational materials in the areas of health, educational and social services to the Latino.

I was born and raised in Fresno and as a child, I remember going to the Azteca Theatre almost every weekend. I would spend hours getting lost in the wonderful world of the Mexican cinema with stars such as Cantiflas, Maria Félix, Pedro Infante and Dolores Del Rio. As I recalled those joyful memories, it saddened me to think that many of today’s children did not have the opportunity to experience the wonders of going to the movies.

With the support of my husband and the encouragement of family and friends, I set out to recreate an atmosphere where the whole valley could once again come together and enjoy the brilliant talent showcased in Spanish language cinema found in current and classic films.

This is a dream come true for me. For a number of years I have wanted to create an environment where whole families could come together and create their own memorable experiences similar to the ones I had as a child. Now it is a reality. I am proud to be your host and to welcome you to join us every Sunday for CineAmericas at the Tower Theatre.
