Movie Info:
Directed by Gregory Nava.
Jennifer Lopez, Jackie Guerra, Jon Seda, and Edward James Olmos.

Though her life was tragically cut short at the age of 23, Tejano music sensation Selena left us a legacy defined by the pure joy of her stage presence and musicianship. In this poignant film, Jennifer Lopez, on the cusp of stardom herself, captures the generosity of spirit and raw talent that defined Selena’s all-too-short career.

Blues On The Green is Austin’s longest-running free music series and a can’t-miss summer experience. Veterans know the drill, but for first-time attendees here is the rundown: You can bring in two factory sealed water bottles, blankets, chairs, and your dog (he must be on a leash at all times). That is what is says on the website, but for the record I’ve never been sent away for packing wine in my picnic basket. My best piece of advice is to either ride your bike, carpool, take the bus, or walk if you can. Parking and traffic around Zilker tonight can be quite the headache.

Admission: Free

Music Starts: 8 p.m.
