It’s April and in Texas and the world over (but especially in Texas) that means it’s time to celebrate the birthday of the beloved Queen of Tejano: Selena.
Alamo Drafthouse Cinema Montecillo will give fans of the fallen star a place to pay tribute to the late-great Selena Quintanilla-Perez with SELENA Movie Parties beginning Tuesday, April 15, 2019, through Sunday, April 21, 2019; and the annual Anything For Selenas celebration in the Glass Half Full Taproom and lobby on Friday, April 19, 2019.
“The Selena Movie Party features new digitally remastered screenings of SELENA, starring Jennifer Lopez “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom”-ing her way to movie stardom (and our hearts),” Alamo Drafthouse officials share.
“Of course, come prepared to have the full Alamo Drafthouse Cinema Movie Party experience – your movie ticket includes themed props to use during the film, a handy lyric sheet so you can sing along (as if you don’t already know all the words to “Como La Flor”) and a custom pre-show completely dedicated to Selena, with her music videos and rare, hard-to-find interviews.”
Tickets are on sale now for SELENA Movie Parties on:
- Tuesday, April 15, at 7:30 p.m.
