Johnny Tapia Film to Make Albuquerque Premiere in February
For those that were not able to make the New Mexico premiere of Johnny Tapia‘s biopic “TAPIA” this past October in Santa Fe, no need to worry as the film will be making its premiere in the former 5-time champion’s hometown of Albuquerque, February 13th at the National Hispanic Cultural Center.
The Albuquerque Journal Theatre inside the cultural center seats about 550 and undoubtedly will sell out so get your tickets early. The October 17th New Mexico Film Festival premiere of film in Santa Fe sold out within weeks of showing and captured the festival’s award for Best Documentary.
The Albuquerque premiere coincides with what would have been Tapia’s 47th birthday. On May 27th of last year, at the age of 45, Tapia died of heart failure.
Tickets to “TAPIA” will go on sale starting Wednesday, January 8rd, 2014 on the center’s website http://www.nationalhispaniccenter.org/.
