Sweetwater Center for the Arts
200 Broad Street, Sewickley 7:00 pm

All he wants is to be a mariachi, like his father, his grandfather 
and his great grandfather before him. But the town he thinks will 
bring him luck brings only a curse - of deadly mistaken identity. 
Forced to trade his guitar for a gun, the mariachi is playing for 
his life in this critically acclaimed film debut from director 
Robert Rodriguez. (Directed by Robert Rodriguez, 1992, rated R, 81 
min.)
