Part of our 12th Annual Summer Film Fest!

This beautifully animated Pixar film, inspired by the Mexican holiday Day of the Dead, follows a young boy, Miguel who loves music. Sadly, Miguel’s family doesn’t share his passion. Despite his family’s generations-old ban on music, young Miguel dreams of becoming an accomplished musician like his idol Ernesto de la Cruz. Desperate to prove his talent, Miguel finds himself in the stunning and colorful Land of the Dead. After meeting a charming trickster named Héctor, the two new friends embark on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel’s family history.
