Event Details

PCFF contributor and senior Turner Classic Movies programmer Scott McGee signs copies of Danger on the Silver Screen, his new book about famous movie stunts, including Douglas Fairbanks in Robin Hood, which we’re showing at 1 pm Sunday, August 7, with accompaniment by Walt Strony on the Wyler Mighty Wurlitzer Pipe Organ. The Plaza Classic Film Festival, which goes into its 15th year July 28-August 7, 2022, was started by the El Paso Community Foundation in 2008 as a special project to bring movies back to the historic Plaza Theatre. The Community Foundation purchased 35mm and state-of-the-art 2K digital projection equipment (which was upgraded to 4K in 2018) for the atmospheric theater, which opened in 1930, closed in the early ’80s, and was restored for $38 million in 2006 in a joint partnership between the City of El Paso and the Community Foundation.
