  • ABOUT LiMe Nites
  • LiMe Nites is a Little México Film Festival side event to raise funds to support our annual grassroots programming in 2019.  
  • LiMe  Nites transforms everyday spaces - like a living room, classroom,  theater or a retail shop - into a captivating venue for a secret independent movie  screening, creating an immersive experience to bring guests together.  
  • Each LiMe Nite could be small, intimate and typically features random  independent movies chosen by movie style, genre, social history or contemporary  movement, by country, etc.
  • You won't find out  what independent movie is playing until you get there, so come with an open mind.
  • Snacks and refreshment are available at the location, come and join us and find a seat.
