Every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evening, the city hosts an open-air concert in the central plaza. Locals and expats come out to enjoy the show—put on a clean T-shirt and your nicest flip-flops, and you’ll fit right in. Concerts typically last two hours, beginning at 7 p.m. in the summer, 8 p.m. in the winter. Simple food stands selling homemade flan, churros, and other local goodies set up around the park these nights, too.
You can catch relatively recent movies at Cinépolis (Av. Rafael Melgar btwn Calles 15 and 17, tel. 987/869-0799, US$4–5, US$3 before 3 p.m. and all day Wed.), which is located in the Chedraui shopping center.
