As part of this year’s celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, the National Hispanic Cultural Center and the Balloon Park Drive-In will screen a series of four films highlighting Hispanic/Latinx history, culture, and contributions.
In this biographical drama, Selena Quintanilla (Jennifer Lopez) is born into a musical Mexican-American family in Texas. Her father, Abraham (Edward James Olmos), realizes that his young daughter is talented and begins performing with her at small venues. She finds success and falls for her guitarist, Chris Perez (Jon Seda), who draws the ire of her father. Seeking mainstream stardom, Selena begins recording an English-language album which, tragically, she would never complete. Directed by Gregory Nava. 1997; English; 128 minutes; rated PG.
The Balloon Fiesta Drive-in is a new drive-in theatre allowing patrons to socialize safely outside their homes during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic while enjoying popular films.
