Classic film ‘Viento Negro”


Rocky Point regulars know – every once in a while, a strong wind will blow into town and stay for a few days. A famous film from the Mexican Cinema is set in one of these storms, out in the dunes of the Pinacate Biosphere reserve.

‘Viento Negro’, or Black Wind, was made in 1964 and tells it’s story around true events that happened during the construction of the railway that connected the State of Baja California with the rest of Mexico.

As part of National Conservation Week (October 27th through 31st), the Cine Club of Puerto Penasco presents the film during  its’ regular Tuesday night event, CineMartes. Every week, the patio of Puerto Viejo Coffee shop finds a gathering of film buffs, as well as those who like to enjoy a pleasant outside event while the weather is so nice.

Admission is free, and the film starts at 8:30pm. Puerto Viejo is located in the Old Port, one block off of the Malecon on Calle Zaragoza, across from the main church.
