Scenes from ‘Pan’s Labyrinth’ and ‘Strange Way of Life’

This weekend the 'plexes will be overrun with everyone who couldn't score a ticket to Taylor Swift's Eras tour (and, let's face it, with everyone who could, too). It will no doubt be an amazing scene. But if you'd prefer to keep the spectacle on the screen, there are loads of options for you, including Cine Latino at the Main.
