Twenty years after the debut of the “Selena” film, movie-goers can celebrate the late singer’s legacy in a place familiar to fans of the Queen of Tejano music.
Later this month, the Sunset Station in San Antonio will serve as the spot for Alamo Drafthouse’s next Rolling Roadshow, a two-day movie party, featuring the iconically Texan film “Selena.” The movie chronicles the singer’s short life, and Jennifer Lopez stars as the Corpus Christi native.
Ticket holders will have access to bars and food from Frank. Visitors can also stroll down the steps inside the Depot building where Selena herself filmed the music video for “No Me Queda Más ” and Lopez walked during the fashion show scene.
The cover band Bidi Bidi Banda will also perform, and attendees are encouraged to dress in Selena-inspired attire for a lookalike contest.
Make a weekend trip out of the show too and go on a scavenger hunt for more places where the film was shot. On the other side of the highway sits the Alamo, along with that very romantic pedestrian bridge on the Riverwalk. The public library also served as a stand-in location for Selena’s visit to Mexico in the film.
