Join us for a Night with SELENA!

For the second year in a row, The Hollywood Theatre and Latino Network are proud to present Ollin: Social Justice Film Series, a series exploring the social justice issues of today. 

The 2018 series “Nuestra Voz” features three films about prominent women who continue to shape and inspire our world today: Musicians Selena Quintanilla and Mercedes Sosa and artist Frida Kahlo.

MONDAY, JULY 9 - SELENA

Released in 1997, Selena is a biographical musical drama documenting the life of Latinx icon, Selena Quintanilla. Set in the southwest during the 1980s and 1990s, the movie profiles the meteoric rise of Selena and Tejano music in America. Jennifer Lopez, in her breakout film debut, plays Selena. As her star rises, the young performer must carefully navigate the complexities of her family, fans, and culture. Selena tells the emotional tale of celebrity, music, and loss during a time when Latino culture and music was gaining national commercial recognition. Directed by Gregory Nava, the film features hit songs from Selena's discography. Come prepared to sing to your favorite songs!

Proceeds go toward Latino Network's advocacy programs.
