First Weekend Field Trip Oscar Nominee For Best Animated Feature CHICO AND RITA This Saturday 1:15pm

Quality Independent film needs our support.

Let’s catch the 1:15pm matinee on Saturday at the Ritz Bourse (4th and Ranstead in Old City) of Oscar nominee CHICO AND RITA.

Academy Award-winning director Fernando Trueba (Belle Epoque) and Spain’s most famous and successful designer, Javier Mariscal, celebrate their passion for the music and culture of Cuba with an epic animated story of love and heartbreak, set against the color and bustle of Havana, New York, Las Vegas, Hollywood and Paris in the late 1940s and early ’50s. In Chico & Rita, a gifted songwriter and beautiful singer chase their dreams-and each other-across the globe. Chico is a young piano player with big dreams. Rita is a beautiful singer with an extraordinary voice. Music and romantic desire unite them, but their journey-in the tradition of the Latin ballad, the bolero-brings heartache and torment. With an original soundtrack by legendary Cuban pianist, bandleader and composer Bebo Valdés, Chico & Rita captures a definitive moment in the evolution of jazz music. Features music by legends Thelonious Monk, Cole Porter, Dizzy Gillespie and Freddy Cole (brother of Nat King Cole). An Academy Award nominee for Best Animated Feature. Includes some mature sexual content.  Official website:
