What you'll do

 

Famous Locations and Cinema History 

Mexico City has a very important place in the history of cinematography.

 

From the location of the very first movie theatre in the Americas we will take a short trip of Mexico's movie history before visiting many locations, even of Academy Award winning films, within the Historic Center.
 

In the late 19th century, Mexican President Porfirio Díaz became the first acting Chief of State to appear on a moving picture.
 

The very first screening of movies in the Americas, took place in 1896 at Chapultepec Castle, followed immediately with the first public showing at 'Droguería Plateros' and then, the establishment of a dedicated theatre, 'Salón Rojo.'
 

We will visit the locations of these two places while I share the history of movies and the Mexican influence in Hollywood through Dolores del Río and Ramón Novarro.
 

As we arrive at the main square of town, we will visit locations of acclaimed productions like Roma, Missing, 007 Spectre, 007 License to Kill, Frida and many others.

 

We will be at the places visited by Denzel Washington, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Salma Hayek, Daniel Craig, Leonardo di Caprio, Jack Lemmon and many others.
 

At the end of the experience, we will finish at the locations for sci-fi movies like Godzilla: King of Monsters and that of Mexican wrestlers of 'Lucha Libre' like Santo and Blue Demon.

 

Where you'll be

At three of the main squares within the 16th century city limits, we will discover the locations of famous productions by walking on the scene, sharing stories seldom told.

 

We will see historical sites, the site of the first dedicated movie theatre in the Americas, the Mining School Palace, the Old Customs Office of 400 years ago and many others.
