Chico and Rita

Splendid Cinema proudly presents the heart breaking and beautiful Chico & Rita

Splendid Cinema presents the stunningly gorgeous animated film, Chico & Rita, on November 11th at 7:30pm at Worcester Arts Workshop.

Chico & Rita tells the story of two aspiring musical stars in 1940’s Havana, Cuba pursuing their dreams as well as the affections of each other, from Havana to New York, Las Vegas and Paris. The couple have a turbulent love affair, with Rita finding fame and fortune in America and Chico chasing after her. They battle impossible odds to unite in music and love.

Nominated for Best Animated Feature Film at the 84th Academy Awards (the first time that a Spanish full-length animated film was nominated), the film won the 2012 Goya Award (the Spanish equivalent of the Oscars) for best animated film. This stylish animation is a joy to watch and perfect for any hopeless romantics out there.
