12th Annual Plaza Classic Film Festival

Arts and Entertainment

June 14, 2019

From: Plaza Classic Film Festival

The Plaza Classic Film Festival, which goes into its 12th year August 1-11, 2019, 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 digital projection equipment (which was upgraded 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.
