'The Last Elvis' ('El Ultimo Elvis') (2012) (Trailer below)

In the unique world of the Buenos Aires celebrity-impersonator scene, “Elvis” Gutiérrez is a star. By day, though, he must contend with a dead-end factory job and an ex-wife who worries about how his obsessive behavior affects their young daughter, Lisa Marie. Feeling more connected to his persona as the King than to his own family, Gutiérrez retreats from reality until a tragic accident interrupts his plans and forces him to grapple with his real-world responsibilities.

Directed by Armando Bo and starring John McInerny, Griselda Siciliani and Margarita Lopez

Event Host: Robb

When and Where: Movie starts at 1pm. We'll meet up for brunch at 'Rudford's' across the street, at 11:30am, and then walk over to the Digital Gym Cinema at 12:45pm for the 1pm showing. If you're not up for brunch...you can always just meet the group at the theater at 12:45pm.

Film Cost: $10.50

Tickets: Although not required...you may want to buy tickets in advance, online, as the theater itself is a smaller venue with only 49 seats. I don't know that this specific film or showing will be packed...but, due to the seat limitations, you may want to play it safe. Tickets can be purchased online, for pickup at the theater box office at:

Search for "last elvis" and then be sure to pick the "11/03 01:00PM El Ultimo Elvis" option.

Parking: I think it's mostly street parking in this area, so plan ahead for finding a spot.
