Time Details:
The first in a new film series! Coco lasts one hour and 45 minutes, and is rated PG. Common Sense Media recommends it for children ages 7 and up, as some of the imagery and story line may be scary for young children. Parents also say that if children of any age are grieving a recent death, parts of this film may be too sad for them. Meanwhile, the film is praised for its fine examples of 'perseverance, teamwork, and gratitude', its accuracy to Mexican traditions, and themes of following your dreams and family love. This event is the first in a series of Family Movie Nights at the Eureka Library co-hosted by the Eureka Branch of the NAACP to promote and celebrate the representation and accomplishments of people of color in movies. Local community organization El Centro del Pueblo joins us in co-hosting the screening of 'Coco'.
