La Bamba – Movie & Special Event

August 29 @ 7:00 pm

$15

MOVIE + SPECIAL EVENT Join us in Mac’s Foxhole Lounge pre-show for a complimentary margarita with a side of fresh chips and salsa from West Chester’s own Taco Mar Restaurants. Meet-and-greet Taco Mar’s chef/owner, Danny! Lou Diamond Phillips delivers his break-out performance as Chicano rock legend, Ritchie Valens (shortened from Valenzuela), chronicaling his meteoric rise to fame and tragic passing at the age of 17. Roger Ebert called this “a good small movie, sweet and sentimental about a kid who never really got to show his stuff.” The film’s soundtrack is performed by Los Lobos at the request of Valenzuela family. Nominated for a Golden Globe; BMI Film Award (soundtrack) went to Carlos Santana and Miles Goodman for “La Bamba.”
