THE MASK OF ZORRO (1998)
The Mask of Zorro is a sweeping romantic adventure of love and honor, of tragedy and triumph set against Mexico’s fight for independence from the iron fist of Spain. Twenty years have passed since Don Diego de la Vega (Anthony Hopkins) fought oppression as the legendary hero Zorro. He now must find a successor to stop Raphael Montero, the tyrant who robbed him of everything he loved and left him to rot in prison. Don Diego chooses Alejandro Murietta (Antonio Banderas), a bandit with a troubled past, and transforms him into the fearless romantic hero Don Diego once was. Armed with the trademark mask, sword, whip and jet-black stallion Tornado, the new Zorro embarks on a mission to stop Montero’s plot to buy California, set right twenty years of wrongs and bring justice to the people enslaved by Montero’s greed.

Liberty Theater History – The Mask Of Zorro was the first film shown when the theater opened after restoration in 2001, so we chose it for this reopening.
Masks or cloth face coverings, covering both your nose and mouth, are required. Zorro eye masks are optional!
Rated PG-13 for some intense action and violence. I would also caution smoking and some suggestive scenes. Graphic violence is disturbing at times. I do not recommend it for children or young teens. -M.E.L.
