The Mission Historical Museum is hosting a not-so-traditional shindig this Saturday from 4 to 7 p.m. for the opening of their newest exhibit, “That’s Entertainment! Movies, Music and More from the Past in Mission.”
The special party features live music by Trio Nuevo Amanecer, Carlos Guzman and renowned singer and musician Mario Saenz. The nostalgia will be sprinkled with popcorn and Cokes at throwback prices, food vendors and a preview tour of the new exhibit designed by Maria Hurtado.
“In a time before computers, video on demand, or MP3 players, the citizens of Mission had to leave their homes to find entertainment,” said Casandra Karl, MHM director. “Although…a small community at that time, venues for movies, music and other diversions were prolific, and people had a lot to choose from when it came to entertainment.”
