- Chairs and blankets are welcome. No umbrellas, please.
- Picnics are welcome but NO ALCOHOL is allowed in City of Santa Fe Parks.
- Food trucks are at most movies.
- Well behaved, leashed dogs are OK, but it usually works better to leave your canine companions at home.

Register for the event and we'll send you updates if there are any schedule changes as well as info on future free Railyard programs and events around Santa Fe and Albuquerque.
Wassa Ensemble will be performing before the movie (7:45-8:15 PM). Wassa Ensemble was founded by master artist Ibrahimasory "Soriba" Fofana from Guinea, West Africa. "Wassa Wassa" is cry of celebration translated as Happy Happy! The ensemble was created out of the artist's life work as musician in the city of Conakry, Guinea, and aims to portray the essence and spirit of West African dance and music. Wassa's vision is to bring people together in sharing the rich traditions of music, dance and songs of Guinea, West Africa. "WONTANARA": We Are Together.
"Black Panther" follows T'Challa who, after the events of "Captain America: Civil War," returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to take his place as King. However, when an old enemy reappears on the radar, T'Challa's mettle as King and Black Panther is tested when he is drawn into a conflict that puts the entire fate of Wakanda and the world at risk.
"This is an origin story, globe-trotting spy thriller and fantasy, all in one. The movie manages to be part of, but something completely different than, the Marvel superhero movies that came before... A deadly game of thrones, with spies, betrayals and all-out war. It's thrilling." (Dallas Morning News)
"If you appreciate finely honed storytelling with a Shakespearean core; winning performances from an enormously talented ensemble; provocative premises touching on isolationism, revolution and cultures of oppression, and oh yeah, tons of whiz-bang action sequences and good humor—then you should see 'Black Panther.' It's one of the best times I've had at the movies this decade." (Chicago Sun-Times)
