#IMSS.- The reopening of the Linterna Mágica movie theater of the Mexican Social Security Institute (IMSS) recovers the splendor of the Independencia Unit and strengthens the concept of a comprehensive social security system that includes social benefits, culture and mental health, said the General Director, Zoé Robledo.
He indicated that the reopening of this movie theater was achieved thanks to the sum of wills on the part of the head of the Ministry of Culture, Alejandra Frausto; the head of government of Mexico City, Claudia Sheinbaum Pardo; and the administration of the Magdalena Contreras Mayor’s Office.
Accompanied by the Secretary of Culture and various personalities from the Institute and show business, the head of Social Security affirmed that the Institute is more than gowns, hospitals and operating rooms, «it has been much more throughout its history, it has been theaters, sports centers, Social Security Centers, workshops, housing units and also movie theaters».
Zoé Robledo pointed out that due to the privatizing concept, spaces such as the Social Security Park were lost in the past, «but we are recovering them because the great lesson of the pandemic is that health is not only the absence of disease, it is the procurement of a state of personal and collective wellbeing».
The head of Social Security recalled that cinema in the IMSS has a long history that even surpasses that of the Magic Lantern cinema, with movies that included the Institute in their plots, characters and locations, such as Quinceañera, Días de Otoño, which starred Ignacio López Tarso; El Señor Doctor and Su Excelencia, both starring Mario Moreno «Cantinflas».
