BSI Family Film — Come See “Coco” Sunday March 11

Coco follows the magical journey of 12-year-old Miguel, an aspiring musician determined to unravel the mystery behind his family’s centuries-old ban on music at home that’s been holding him back from playing guitar to his heart’s content. As he travels through the lyrically beautiful Land of the Dead, Miguel finds happiness and laughter by connecting with his ancestors. This uplifting folk tale taps into the wonders of Mexican culture and recasts the afterlife through a child’s eyes.

Come join us in the BSI auditorium on Sunday, March 11 at 3:30 pm to watch this inspiring film. Tickets are $10 for the entire family. Order tickets by March 10th. Doors will open at 3pm. The film will begin at 3:30pm. Snacks will be sold at the event. Order tickets before March 10th. See you there!
