July 5th, 2019 by

The Elmhurst Park District invites you to see free Movies in the Park on Friday, July 12 at Wilder Park. Families can watch an animated, family-friendly movie, Disney Pixar’s “Coco.” The film begins at dusk (approximately 8:45 p.m.). Bring food with you or sample some of the delicious fare available for purchase from on-site food trucks. There will be lots of free popcorn, too. Don’t forget your picnic blanket! All of us at Elmhurst Toyota enjoy the annual Movies in the Park tradition and we hope you have a chance to attend.

Movies in the Park“Coco” is an animated musical film made in 2017. It tells the story of a 12-year-old boy named Miguel, who finds himself transported to the Land of the Dead. There, he asks his deceased great-great-grandfather, a musician, to reverse his family’s ban on music. This movie features original music and the voices of Gael García Bernal, Benjamin Bratt, Anthony Gonzalez, Ana Ofelia Murguía, Edward James Olmos, Alanna Ubach and Renée Victor.

The Mexican Day of the Dead holiday served as the inspiration for the film. Pixar started developing the film’s animation in 2016. The director, Lee Unkrich and some members of the movie’s crew visited Mexico to do research. The score was composed by Michael Giacchino. Coco is the first movie with a budget of nine figures to have an all-Latino principal cast. The film won two Academy Awards, one for Best Animated Feature and one for Best Original Song (“Remember Me”).

There’s something magical about seeing movies under the stars on a summer evening. So, join your friends and neighbors and head out to Movies in the Park for some good old-fashioned fun.

Movies in the Park is brought to you by a partnership of the Elmhurst Park District and the Elmhurst Public Library. Community sponsors are Suburban Bank & Trust, Edward-Elmhurst Health and The Schiller Team.
