Historic Tower Theatres to show Cuban Film Festival
MIAMI, FL — In a sign of changing times, the Historic Tower Theatre in the heart of Miami’s Little Havana Cuban exile community will be hosting a festival of films from Cuba.
In the past, the exhibition of films from the island in Miami have been greeted with everything from accusations of the theatre management’s Communist sympathies to demonstrations to bomb threats and one incident of an exploding projector.
In recent years locals have been able to watch bootleg videos from the homeland and one local TV channel runs some titles without permission on Saturday nights, while making escrow payments for some planned future compensation to the Cuban state run film industry.
