“¿Que Pasa, U.S.A?” Marathon

Wear your retro Miami fashion and join us for a “¿Que Pasa, U.S.A?” marathon! The program, which aired from 1977–‘80, explored the trials and tribulations faced by the Peñas, a Cuban-American family living in Miami’s Little Havana neighborhood, as they struggled to cope with a new country and a new language. The series was praised as being very true-to-life and accurately, if humorously, portraying the life and culture of Miami’s Cuban-American population. Free with museum admission. Free for members and NSU students and faculty. Please RSVP to moareservations@moafl.org or or (954) 262-0227.
