Symphony and Cinema dazzles families to kick off the holiday weekend

Cars packed (in a socially distant way) the parking lot of Dallas College North Lake Campus on Friday, October 30th for Night at the Drive-In Symphony and Cinema presented by the Las Colinas Association.

The event space was decorated to match the feature movie, Coco and attendees were entertained with a mariachi band as they waited for the event to start. All the movie perks were provided, each vehicle received a bag with king-size candy, adult and kids face masks, hand sanitizers and a PINSTACK player card. Each attendee received water and a box of popcorn to enjoy with the movie.

Before the feature film, the crowd was dazzled by the Irving Symphony Orchestra led by conductor Luis Rodriguez. They performed music from Coco and other Disney numbers. All proceeds from the event went to the Irving Symphony Orchestra, which was a total of $1,444. The symphony was introduced by Al Zapanta, Irving City Councilman and President and CEO of the United States-Mexico Chamber of Commerce.

The heartwarming film started just after dark and captivated the audience. The event was a great start to the Dia de Los Muertos and Halloween weekend.
