The Arthouse at 3Below Theaters Presents…

COCO Dia De Los Muertos Celebration

Fall, when temperatures dip and trees shed their leaves. This is our favorite time of the year, not only because of the blustery weather but also because it marks the season of holidays and our family’s traditions. These include the screening of holiday-themed movies and theater visits. 3Below hopes you will join us in the celebration of the Mexican tradition known as Día de los Muertos (the Day of the Dead) and experience Disney Pixar’s Coco as a community.

The beloved film “Coco” is the story of Miguel, a young boy eager to follow his passion for music in a family that—puzzlingly—has banned music for several generations. The title refers to Miguel’s great-grandmother Mamá Coco, whose father is key to the anti-music mystery. This tale unfolds in an unspecified Mexican town on the eve of El Día de los Muertos (the Day of the Dead) as the entire community is preparing to honor their departed loved ones. Miguel finds himself transported to the place of the dead just as the dead are making their way to the land of the living to be with their family and friends. Adventures ensue as this living boy tries to navigate the land of the dead, a visually vibrant and whimsically reimagined illustration of this traditional realm.

Despite his family’s baffling generations-old ban on music, Miguel dreams of becoming an accomplished musician like his idol, Ernesto de la Cruz. Desperate to prove his talent, Miguel finds himself in the stunning and colorful Land of the Dead following a mysterious chain of events. Along the way, he meets charming trickster Hector, and together, they set off on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel’s family history.

The Coco Sing-Along is a special presentation of this critically acclaimed movie where guests are given the opportunity to sing along with the memorable songs from the soundtrack as the film plays on the big screen making it easy for both those who are familiar with the songs and those who have never heard them before to join in the fun. Some of the most well-known songs from the movie include “Remember Me,” “Un Poco Loco,” “The World Es Mi Familia,” and “Proud Corazon.” The sing-along component of the film adds an extra layer of fun and interaction for guests of all ages, bringing them even closer to the characters and making the experience even more memorable.

The Coco Sing-Along captures the spirit of the Day of the Dead celebration with its vibrant colors, lively music, and elaborate altars adorned with flowers and offerings. It is a heartwarming story that celebrates family, tradition, and the importance of following your dreams. In addition to the catchy tunes, the Coco Sing-Along also features stunning animation and attention to detail in every scene. The Land of the Dead is a breathtakingly beautiful world, filled with colorful buildings and characters that glow with an otherworldly radiance. The designs of the characters are also visually striking, with their intricate clothing and makeup reflecting the culture and traditions of Mexico. 

Our interactive experiences begin with a pre-show led by our quirky and witty emcee who welcomes our enthusiastic audiences and introduces the interactive elements of each Sing-Along Experience. A Fun Pack is included as part of admission to enhance the participation experience. Party fun, contests, in-movie antics and lots of surprises are expected with even more giveaways and props are part of the fun.

Overall, the Coco Sing-Along is an engaging and entertaining movie experience that is perfect for families, music lovers, and anyone who appreciates a powerfully communicated story. The themes of the movie are universal, touching on the importance of family, community, a sense of belonging, tradition, the power of music, and the significance of remembering those who have passed away. With its catchy songs, stunning animation, and heartfelt message, the film is sure to delight audiences of all ages and leave them humming the tunes long after the movie is over.

About Our Alongs

Back in 2009 when we hosted our first “along”, we had no idea we would go on to present hundreds of sing-along and quote-along events delighting tens of thousands of people throughout the state. Now that we have a theater to program 365 days a year, we have plenty of opportunities to book the best in interactive entertainment!

Event Highlights

Our interactive experiences begin with a pre-show led by our quirky and witty emcee who welcomes our enthusiastic audiences and introduces the interactive elements of each Sing-Along, Quote-Along or Special Event Experience. A Fun Pack is included as part of admission to enhance the participation experience. And, additional in-movie antics with even more giveaways and props are frequently part of the fun.


The pre-show starts at the published event time; no need to arrive any earlier than you normally would to get great food and drinks from our café, use the restrooms, and find your seats – and since seats are reserved in advance, you’ll save even more time. During the pre-show, our host will explain all the fun planned for the event including the fun pack included with your admission price, the on-screen lyrics (for sing-alongs), and other in-movie antics you can look forward to.

Costumes Strongly Encouraged!

Dressing up in a costume from the movie, or that ties in creatively, is always encouraged! We may even bring you up to showcase your costume as part of the pre-show festivities…and sometimes we even have costume contests for terrific prizes.
