Alamo Drafthouse Cinema and the Wildflower Center are coming together to transform the Family Garden into a theater! Spread your blanket or set up chairs on the Play Lawn and enjoy “Coco,” a vibrant, adventurous family film from Pixar inspired by the Mexican Day of the Dead tradition. Costumes are welcome! Come early for crafts, live music and other festivities!
“Pixar’s ode to Día de Muertos is exquisitely full of life… Nearly everything about it is breathtaking, from its eye-popping visual splendor to its warmly beating heart. The vibrant colors, rousing music, and moving story will leave viewers alternately delighted and emotional… Enchanting and dazzling, Coco is a resplendent love letter to Mexico.”
― Claudia Puig, A Rotten Tomatoes Top Critic
