Select Santikos Locations Will Screen Selena on Late Singer's Birthday


  • Facebook / Selena Movie
Although it's been 23 years since her death, Selena is as relevant as ever. Santikos Theatres announced that select San Antonio locations will screen the 1997 film Selena later this month.

While there's always Selena-inspired events going on, especially this time of year – her birthday and death anniversary are only a few weeks apart – the San Antonio-based movie-theater chain is trying to get us in our feels with the classic film. The Casa Blanca, Embassy, Mayan Palace, Northwest, Palladium, Rialto and Silverado locations will screen Selena at 7 p.m. on April 16, what would have been Selena's 47th birthday.

And because the queen could eat a whole medium pizza by herself, Santikos is offering discounted pizza slices at $4.50 each.

You can buy tickets ($5 each) and reserve your seat here.
