4 Responses to “Merida Events: Movies Everywhere!”

  1. Past “here are some events you might like”, there are no dates given. Is it possible to get the dates from you or do I need to inquire at the individuall locations? Also your calendar of events arrives in my mailbox in the middle of the week on a Wednesday, too late for the three previous days. Could this be changed or is it a logistical problem? Thanks, apart from the above I enjoy your news and information.

  2. Victoria, the Events are posted on the website by Monday morning, but we don’t get the newsletter out til Tuesday. It’s just little old me doing it, and I get busy… I get it out when I can. But if you want to know what events are happening, just come straight to the website without waiting for the newsletter! As far as dates, all the events have dates. I’m not sure what you are referring to…

  3. OH, now I see! Those events are all on the weekend referred to above where it says “Here are some events you might like”. They are all part of the French Music Festival on June 21.

  4. Also, we got our information from the website. As you can see, THEY don’t tell us which dates. So as far as we know, those events are scattered over those two days or repeated on both days. We work with what we get and do the best we can!
