Movie: Chico & Rita at the Normal Theater

On Thursday,  September 19, 2013, Normal Theater will feature the Oscar nominated animated film, Chico and Rita, which features Bebo Valdes' music.  Chuchito Valdes (who will perform the following night at the BCPA) will appear prior to the film to briefly discuss memories of his grandfather, Bebo, and his music. 

Chico and Rita is a Spanish animated feature-length film in Spanish and English. 
Synopsis: Chico is a young piano player with big dreams. Rita is a beautiful singer with an extraordinary voice. Music and romantic desire unites them, but their journey - in the tradition of the Latin ballad, the bolero - brings heartache and torment.
