ON FILM: Plaza Classic Film Festival

Charles talks with Eric Pearson, president of the El Paso Community Foundation.  Hear about the return of the world’s largest classic film festival to the region.  Over 80 movies will be screened in venues including the Plaza Theatre, the El Paso Museum of Art, and Arts Festival Plaza.  Rita Moreno returns to the region 20 years after holding a fundraising performance to save the historic Plaza Theatre, and she will be attending a special screening of “West Side Story” on Aug. 1. Other special guests include Angela Cartwright of “The Sound of Music” and Margaret O’Brien, a former child actress who starred in “The Secret Garden.”  Erick & Charles also talk about some of the films that will be spotlighted on the big screen, including silent movies that will have live musical accompaniment!
