The days are getting shorter, which means it’s time for outdoor movies! Join BCA and BPRW for Fall Flicks in The Park! On three Fridays this September, we’ll project fun family films on our new large screen in Water Works Park, located near the Moran Plant on the waterfront. Shows start at 7:15pm and are all ages and free. Why not bundle up, bring a blanket and join us for some Fall Flicks? We’ll see you there!

About Coco: 

Despite his family's baffling generations-old ban on music, Miguel dreams of becoming an accomplished musician like his idol, Ernesto de la Cruz. Desperate to prove his talent, Miguel finds himself in the stunning and colorful Land of the Dead following a mysterious chain of events. Along the way, he meets charming trickster Hector, and together, they set off on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel's family history. Written by Disney/Pixar
