Selena

When: Sat., Sept. 24, 6-10 p.m. 2016

Jennifer Lopez is no Selena, but the singer/actress did do a hell of a job playing the late Queen of Tejano in Gregory Nava’s biopic, which played a crucial role in spreading Selena’s legacy. For many, watching the movie has become an integral part of the process of coping with Selena’s untimely death and celebrating her life. In observance of Hispanic Heritage Month, Slab Cinema and Mission Marquee Plaza team up for a free outdoor screening of the 1997 film, complete with a Selena look-a-like contest, a mariachi performance, cultural demonstrations, food, beer and arts vendors, and musical finales courtesy of Isabel Marie Sanchez and Volcán.
