Spanish screening of 'Coco' set for Friday at Shute Park
Looking for an evening out with the niños?
As part of Hillsboro Parks and Recreation's new Pix in the Park film series, organizers plan to show the Pixar animated film "Coco" on Friday, Aug. 10, at Shute Park.
The film will be show in Spanish, with English subtitles. The film tells the story of a young Mexican boy transported to the Land of the Dead during Dia de los Muertos.
The 2017 film won two Academy Awards earlier this year, for best animated feature and best original song.
The screening begins at 7 p.m. at Shute Park, 750 S.E. Eighth Ave., in Hillsboro.
The annual outdoor movie nights were previously known as Pix in the Plaza, with screenings outside the Hillsboro Civic Center, but organizers changed the name to Pix in the Park earlier this year and plan to offer the film screenings at a handful of local parks, offering free family-friendly movie screenings each Friday evening in August.
The following week, Aug. 17, the series moves to Ron Tonkin Field with a screening of "Paranorman," an animated film by Hillsboro animation studio Laika, located across the street form the ballpark, 4460 N.E. Century Blvd.
The series wraps up Aug. 23 at Orenco Woods Nature Park with the Disney film "A Wrinkle in Time." Orenco Woods Nature Park is located at 7100 N.E. Birch St.
Each of the films will be preceded by live musical performances and light concessions at 7 p.m. The screenings begin at dusk.
