Hollywood has too often relegated Latino characters to stereotype: the bandido, the buffoon, the harlot, the Latin lover. Not so with the Library’s August film series, Latinos in Cinema.

In the Stanley H. Durwood Film Vault, Central Library, 14 W. 10th St.

This title is Rated R and is recommended for adult audiences only.

Mike Yeates and Andrew Mackey explain how they took an all-but-forgotten home and made it the office site of their business, The Real Estate Store. The home (9550 NE Cookingham Dr) is possibly the oldest in the Kansas City area and a rare early example of Gothic Revival architecture in the Midwest.

The 2015 Kansas City Architecture Series examines how historic buildings in Kansas City’s downtown area have been repurposed and given new life.
