Catch movies under the stars out in Abbott Square with a new ongoing film series created in collaboration with Westside Video, the Diversity Center, and the Watsonville Film Festival.

Throughout the fall we’ll be screening films that inspire and connect to help us grow through this moment together. So grab a drink or snack at Abbott Square and join us outdoors for this ongoing series.

For our first screening, we’ve teamed up with Westside Video to present Hearts Beat Loud, a feel-good family drama about a community coming together through creativity and music.

Space is limited to the first 100 attendees to allow for adequate physical distancing on the patio. There is no pre-registration required, drop-by when you can but if possible, we recommend you arrive early to ensure you have a seat.

Stay tuned for more upcoming film listings this fall.

19 de septiembre de 2017 un potente terremoto sacude a México y los niños de uno de los poblados más afectados aprenden a sublimar el trauma a través de su mundo poético interior y los colores de la pintura. En San Gregorio Atlapulco, Xochimilco, la creación de comunidad por medio del arte nos muestra que cuando se abre la tierra también se abren nuestros corazones.
