HAVANA, Sep 12 (PL) The screening of the film ”Salon Mexico” (1948) opens today in Cuba an exhibition of newly restored classic Mexican cinema.

His films will converge in the capital’s Acapulco movies until September 16 with films by Arturo Ripstein, Alberto Isaac and Nicolas Echeverria.

The feature film ‘Salon Mexico’ (1948), by El Indio, mixes cabaret, melodrama and touches of black cinema.
