5:30 PM Film: Un Padre No Tan Padre (From Dad to Worse) Film Forum and the Friends of the Chula Vista Library present a free Mini Concert at 5:30 PM with acoustic duo "BLIAH" (Bliss Montemayor and Miah Abaja), followed by a free screening of "Un Padre No Tan Padre" (From Dad to Worse) in the Library auditorium at 6:00 PM.

Raul Martinez's freewheeling debut focuses on family: the one we're born into and the one we create along the way. New Age collides with old age in majestic San Miguel de Allende when cantankerous Servando Villegas is bounced from his retirement home and lands in an eccentric commune with his estranged son. Starring Hector Bonilla, Benny Ibarra and Jacqueline Bracamontes. In Spanish with English subtitles. (2016. 94 minutes, PG-13)
