Family Flicks: Lu Over the Wall, Aug 23

Suggested for ages 8 and up. New kid Kai is talented but adrift, spending his days sulking and isolated in a small fishing village after his family moves from Tokyo. When he demonstrates a proficiency at making music on his synthesizer, his classmates invite him to join their nascent garage band, but their practice sessions soon bring an unexpected guest: Lu, a young mermaid whose fins turn to feet when she hears the beats and whose singing causes humans to compulsively dance, whether they want to or not. Films begin at sundown. Bring your lawn chairs, blankets, and picnics. Pets are not permitted on the San Antonio Museum of Art campus; however, service animals are permitted at the Museum. FREE, Event is from 8:30-10:30p
