“Selena was already an icon before she was sadly killed in 1995,” said Analiza Guzman, Creative Director at Alamo Drafthouse Cinema Montecillo. “Since her passing, her place in our hearts has only continued to grow alongside her cultural status as a pop star, and role model for young Mexican-American woman. It is a privilege for us to honor her life, music and legacy.”

Additional screenings may be added throughout weekend, based on demand. The Anything For Selenas celebration is named after one of the most iconic scenes in SELENA in which one of her fans pledges to do “Anything for Selenas.”

In addition to paying tribute to the life and music of the late and Queen of Tejano, the 1997 film helped launch Jennifer Lopez into superstardom. Click here for more showtimes and to purchase tickets: https://drafthouse.com/el-paso/show/selena-movie-party
