Civil Rights Icon Dolores Huerta to Host Special Screenings at Alamo Drafthouse

After you see the new film about her life, hear directly from civil rights pioneer Dolores Huerta live and in-person at Alamo Drafthouse Cinema Montecillo.

In conjunction with PBS Distribution, Alamo Drafthouse Cinema Montecillo is proud to welcome Huerta for special Q&A sessions after the screenings on Sunday, October 15 at 2:15pm and 6:30pm and Monday, October 16 at 7pm at Alamo Drafthouse Cinema Montecillo.

Tickets for these special screenings can be purchased here.

Alamo Drafthouse Cinema Montecillo will open regular screenings of DOLORES beginning Friday, October 13 for a one-week-only engagement. Tickets for DOLORES screenings are available here.

Huerta is among the most important, yet least known, activists in American history. An equal partner in co-founding the first farm workers unions with César Chávez, her enormous contributions have gone largely unrecognized.

Huerta tirelessly led the fight for racial and labor justice alongside Chávez, becoming one of the most defiant feminists of the twentieth century and she continues the fight to this day, at 87.

With intimate and unprecedented access to this intensely private mother to eleven, the film, directed by Peter Bratt, reveals the raw, personal stakes involved in committing one’s life to social change.

In 2012, President Obama bestowed Huerta with her most prestigious award, The Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian award in the United States.

Alamo Drafthouse Cinema Montecillo is located at 250 East Montecillo Blvd., just off Mesa in West El Paso.

  • Just as long as Donald Trump the DOTARD MORON don’t take the prestigious Presidential Medal of Freedom away from Dolores Huerta. Since Donald Trump has it out for President Obama by trying to destroy all of his accomplishments, good deeds and legacy.
