Films with Friends: Disney’s Coco
Saturday, October 21st
Join us for an outdoor movie at Sutter’s Fort State Historic Park
Save the date for the return of Films with Friends at Sutter’s Fort SHP! For the first time we will be bringing holiday themed movies to the walls of Sutter’s Fort. Our October movie is Disney’s Coco, an animated movie from 2017 that instantly became a classic.
In Disney/Pixar’s vibrant tale of family, fun and adventure, aspiring young musician named Miguel (voice of newcomer Anthony Gonzalez) embarks on an extraordinary journey to the magical land of his ancestors. There, the charming trickster Hector (voice of Gael Garcia Bernal) becomes an unexpected friend who helps Miguel uncover the mysteries behind his family’s stories and traditions.
Plan Your Movie Night
5:30 PM: Find your perfect spot in the public park grounds at Sutter’s Fort State Historic Park.
The movie will be projected onto the Fort wall at 26th and L. Spaces are first come first serve, please bring your own chairs/ blankets. Dogs on leash are OK. No alcohol please.
While we wait for the movie to start, enjoy live music by local musician Austin Najera. Austin has been playing guitar for 20 years and has studied with some of the best Flamenco guitarists in the area.
Refreshing beverages and other treats will be on-site and available for purchase.
The first 100 attendees to visit the Friends of Sutter’s Fort table will receive a glow bracelet and small popcorn.
6:30 PM: The movie will begin as soon as it is dark enough to see the movie projection on the walls of Sutter’s Fort SHP.
