Plaza Classic Film Festival

Wednesday, Aug 4, 2021 at 2:00pm to Friday, Sep 3, 2021 at 6:20pm


The Plaza Classic Film Festival, which goes into its 14th year July 29-August 8, 2021, 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.
