Pixar’s Halloween family-favorite “Coco” is coming to the Drive-in!

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.

Coco was nominated for various awards and won a number of them, including several for Best Animated Feature. The song “Remember Me” was particularly praised. At the 75th Golden Globe Awards, it won Best Animated Feature Film while it was nominated for Best Original Song for the song, “Remember Me”.

Don’t miss this heart-warming family feature to brighten up your Halloween!
