A fundraiser for the Conservancy – which assists in facilitating various upgrades to Angel Island, a National Park, and which also sponsors a scholarship program for underserved youth – the screening will take place in the island’s lush Ayala Cove.

Angel IslandPre-show picnicking, with live music, games and activities, begins at 5 p.m., with the screening beginning at dusk. A $30 adult ticket includes a round-trip ferry ride from Tiburon and admission to the film. $15 for kids. Picnics are encouraged, and attendees are advised to bring blankets, chairs, and layers of apparel, as the night could get windy and cold.

‘Coco,’ which won the Oscar for best animated film earlier this year, tells the story of a guitar-loving boy from a family where music is not allowed who finds himself in the Land of the Dead. There, he sets off on a quest to find his deceased father, who might have the power to return him to the Land of the Living and also provide answers to why his family has banned all music from their lives.
