‘Selena’ returns to cinemas in honor of its 25th anniversary

The film returns to cinemas in honor of its 25th anniversary, according to a message on the late singer Selena Quintanilla’s confirmed Facebook page.

“25 years ago TODAY, ‘Selena’ was released in theaters across the country with Jennifer Lopez and Edward James Olmos in the lead roles,” the ad read. “We’re celebrating a legend, her legacy and music.” Selena “will be released in cinemas nationwide from April 7.”

Quintanilla was a Tejano music star ready for crossover success when she was shot down in 1995 by her fan club president and friend, Yolanda Saldívar.

The singer was 23.

The film made Jennifer Lopez a star and was recorded in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress last year.
