Eugenio Derbez plays a billionaire with amnesia and Anna Faris plays his former employee who decides to teach him a lesson in humility in "Overboard."

Media Arts Center San Diego kicks off its ¡Que Viva Cine Latino! Outdoor Film Series at the Las Americas Premium Outlets on Wednesday. Here's a preview.

If you can’t get your fill of Latino films at the annual San Diego Latino Film Festival, then this month Media Arts Center San Diego has something perfect to fill your summer nights.

The nonprofit Media Arts Center San Diego sponsors both the San Diego Latino Film Festival and ¡Que Viva Cine Latino!, which brings the latest and best Latino films to the South Bay community.

Wednesdays in September are dedicated to family-friendly entertainment under the stars with live entertainment and art exhibits at the Paseo del Arte corridor at Las Americas Premium Outlets.

¡Que Viva Cine Latino! kicks off on Wednesday with the romantic comedy "Overboard" about a Latino billionaire (Eugenio Derbez) who gets taught a life lesson after amnesia leaves him in the hands of a disgruntled former employee (Anna Faris). The film came out earlier this year and scored at the box office.

The series continues with the family film "El Jeremías," about a gifted child; the documentary "Dolores" about long-time activist Dolores Huerta; and concludes with the Oscar-winning Pixar animated film "Coco."

All screenings are free and open to the public, with seating available on a first-come basis.
