A successful summer of Teatro, Movies, and our Cafés
We had our most productive and successful summer in years as we hosted a bunch of events from July through September .  
Escena Latina Teatro put on a spectacular series of outdoor performances on July 19, 20, and 21 with Cumbia de Mi Corazón in our Teatro en el Parque. The weather was great, the attendance was robust, and the shows were funny, inspiring, and thought-provoking. And each night before the shows we set up pop-up cafés with live Latin jazz, complementary food from local restaurants and food stores, and fun games and merchant displays.  
Moreover on August 25 and September 8 we hosted our first two summer movies ever in our Movies in Mozart series showing first Coco and then Paddington 2. And like our Teatro shows we had complementary food from local restaurants and food stores as well as games for kids and adults alike. A special thanks to the City of Boston's Parks and Recreation Department for logistics support and making sure the park was well maintained and ready for our events. 
We received an amazing amount of generous support for the Teatro en el Parque, Movies in Mozart, and the caf és from the community. Thank you to the local restaurants, food stores, musicians, and vendors. And many thanks to our funders:
