We saw the space a while back, and we think it’s going to be really wonderful.

And bonus for Mundo lovers—they’ll be serving up Argentinian treats during next week’s Outdoor Cinema screening, Viola. Here’s hoping for Red Sonjas, of course! Get there early to enjoy all that Mundo will offer—and by the way, the director of Viola, Matias Piñeiro, will be there in person! There will probably be Argentinian music at the 7 p.m. pre-screening performance, too.
