“Coco” (2017), the Oscar-winning animated feature that delves into Mexican culture and the Day of the Dead, is this week’s movie-night pick. The story follows Miguel, a 12-year-old aspiring musician whose family has banned music from their home, as he enters the Land of the Dead to find his great-great-grandfather, a legendary musician. Created by the Pixar animation studios, “Coco” is rated No. 76 on a list of all-time best movies, and is the winner of two Oscars (for Best Animated Feature, and Best Song), as well as BAFTA, Golden Globes, and Annie awards. Starring Gael Garcia Bernal and Benjamin Bratt, “Coco” is highly recommended.
Movie night at Il Caffé, a charming Italian restaurant on a pedestrian road behind the Peón Contreras theater. Have dinner on your own at 6 to enjoy a free movie, aimed at English-speaking audiences, at 7.
Previously on Wednesdays, the weekly event is now on a Tuesday schedule.
