The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to partner with Theatrikos Theatre Company to bring movies to Downtown Flagstaff!

This series continues on Friday, Sept. 15 with the Flagstaff encore of “Selena” — in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month at 7:00 p.m. at Theatrikos Theatre Company.

The nuts and bolts of the irresistibly danceable music called Tejano are pop, rock, polka, R&B and Latin influences. To millions of fans, there's another vital ingredient: the dynamic singer Selena.

“Selena” is the vibrant story of the Grammy-winning singer whose life ended at its creative peak. A Texas-born Tejano singer who rose from cult status to performing at the Astrodome, Selena had chart-topping albums on the Latin music charts. Pulsating with her own voice on the soundtrack, the film is bracingly authentic.

In the title role, Jennifer Lopez powerfully captures the warmth and electricity of a beloved entertainer. She received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress in a Leading Role for her performance as Selena. Edward James Olmos, Jon Seda and others also shine in a poignant, heartwarming movie that deserves a standing ovation.

Theatrikos Theatre Company is located at 11 W. Cherry Ave. in Downtown Flagstaff.

This partnership and collaboration is made possible by a generous grant from Creative Flagstaff.
