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.

Free Popcorn to the first 100 patrons to visit the Midwest Theater’s concession stand for popcorn, soda & candy as well as Rositas Trokita will be at the screening with authentic Mexican food.

  • PLEASE Do Not come if you or a member of your family is sick.
  • PLEASE Only attend as a family/group who all live together. Do not stop and pick up your friends/family or other people who don’t live with you.
  • PLEASE Ensure that each family unit is sitting 6 feet apart.
