If you’re ready for another great summer of Movie Mondays, say “I do!” This sweet romantic comedy stars Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore as a seemingly perfectly matched pair, if only they weren’t engaged to other people. Will they discover each other and find true love? Only with the help of a soundtrack of classic ‘80s tunes!

Buena Vista Social Club
July 15, 2013
Acclaimed director Wim Wenders’ documentary follows American jazz guitarist Ry Cooder as he travels to Cuba to unite the legendary musicians of pre-revolutionary Havana.
The result was not only a triumphant performance of extraordinary music (hailed by Rolling Stone Magazine as one of the 300 greatest albums of all time), but also helped immortalize the artists who were all but forgotten in their own country.
On September 17, the Center opens its 2013 –2014 Season with Orquestra Buena Vista Social Club in the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall.
