Old Pasadena Film Festival Is Here – More Free Movies Folks!

OK, we might be on to something as Pasadena seems to be the Southland’s best-kept-secret for free top quality film screenings. Tomorrow night (Friday July 11th) the Old Pasadena Film Festival begins! It’s a three-weekend district-wide film festival happening on rooftops, in basements, walls, courtyards, shops and in theaters in Old Pasadena. All screenings are FREE and open to the public.

Check the full schedule here, but tomorrow night kicks off with three not-to-miss tickets!

Emerging Filmmakers: Films and shorts by students and faculty from the Armory Center for the Arts, Art Center College of Design and Pasadena City College. Screening @ The Armory Center @ 7:00PM

Breakfast At Tiffany’s: Ah when Tiffany’s was that far away magical place only on 5th Avenue and 57th Street in New York City…Whirl away the evening watching Holly Golightly, breeze ever-so-gently through the real world with hardly a ripple. Screening @ One Colorado Courtyard (outdoors) @ 8:30PM

The War Of The Worlds (1953): Bring your boyfriend and a blanket (SoCal nights are cool) and snuggle up to the quintessential 1950’s science fiction film, in which scientists and the military join forces to conquer an alien invasion. Screening @ School House Parking Structure Rooftop (across from Historic Castle Green) @ 10:00PM

On Saturday July 12th, don’t miss more Emerging Filmmakers at The Armory (7:00PM), Under The Tuscan Sun @ local travel favorite Distant Lands (7:00PM) and more Hepburn with My Fair Lady @ One Colorado (8:30PM).

We can’t wait to hear what next weekend brings.
