HOUSTON – Alamo Drafthouse will host two special screenings of “Selena” starring Jennifer Lopez, on April 11 and, on the late "Queen of Tejano" star's birthday -- April 16 -- at the LaCenterra Houston location. 

Both screenings will be held at 7:30 p.m.

The theater says it will provide themed props to use during the film, including a lyric sheet to make it easier to sing along to the movie. 

A pre-show for each screening will feature Selena music videos and rare, hard-to-find interviews, according to Alamo Drafthouse. 

Twenty-four years ago today, the world lost the one and only Selena Quintanilla-Perez. We hope you'll join us in celebrating her life and legacy on April 11th and on her birthday April 16th. At each screening there'll be a chance for you to win a DVD of "Selena Live! - The Last Concert", her last concert at the Houston Astrodome in 1995.
