  • About

    It has become a museum tradition to pair a delicious dinner by acclaimed Orange County chef Diego Velasco with a fun Elvis Presley movie! This year, we've chosen Fun in Acapulco from 1963 and chef Velasco will be serving up some tasty Mexican food with music in the background to set the mood.


    Elvis plays Mike Windgren who works on a yacht in Acapulco. When the bratty daughter of the yacht owner gets him fired, Mike must find new work. A little boy named Rauol helps him get a job as a lifeguard and singer at a local hotel. Clashes abound when Mike some work hours and the girl of a rival lifeguard who also happens to be the champion diver of Mexico.
