El Paso Community Foundation Plaza Classic Film Festival



The Plaza Classic Film Festival,
which goes into its 13th year August 5 - 9, 2020, was started by the El Paso Community Foundation in 2008 as a special project to bring its 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.
