What: "Dia de los Muertos" California movie and dinner night

When: Tuesday, November 2,[masked]:30 PM

Where: Kathleen's house

Sunnyvale, CA 94089

A change in pace for our California movie night; The Crow: City of Angels," a film in the genre of Comic Books and Superheroes, Action Sci-Fi & Fantasy, Action Thrillers, according to Neflix, which describes the film as "Scary, Mind-bending, Imaginative, Dark"

What more could we desire for our California movie night at this time of year? At the tail end of our series of movies on Hispanic influence in California, right after Halloween and exactly on "El Dia de los Muertos," we have a seasonally-appropriate (spooky) film which encompasses this Latin American traditional holiday .

Wikipedia tells us that "The film "The Crow: City of Angels" takes place in a fictionalized version of Los Angeles during the Day of the Dead celebration. Sugar skulls and tribute altars are referenced, and the film's climax takes place during a large Day of the Dead street party."

Netflix describes "The Crow: City of Angels" this way. After witnessing a drug-related killing, Ashe Corven (Vincent Perez) gets brutally murdered by an evil drug cartel -- and brought back to life by a mysterious crow. With help from the beautiful Sarah (Mia Kirshner), he exacts revenge on his killers one by one -- only to realize that his enemy, the lethal Judah (Richard Brooks), has found the one weakness that can destroy Ashe. Tim Pope directed this brooding sequel to the 1994 cult hit "The Crow."

We'll serve Mexican dishes typically eaten or offered at this time of year; just bring a cash contribution. Click here for a detailed, colorful description of "El Dia de los Muertos."

AN EMAIL WILL BE SENT THE DAY BEFORE THE EVENT WITH EXACT STREET ADDRESS AND FOOD INFO. For general planning purposes, this will be held in Sunnyvale near 101 and Fair Oaks.

The movie is one hour and 24 minutes long; click here for imdb's summary.
