Come join our Film Series...Now monthly or weekly!

 

What began in June, 2000 as the first weekly Classic Film Series in the El Paso Southwest, returns as an ongoing film series—now having grown to offering both monthly and weekly!

 

SFS meets MONTHLY (either on Saturday or Sunday) at Ardovino's Desert Crossing in Sunland Park. Come out early or stay late for cocktails and dinner. See map and directions.

 

And now SFS meets WEEKLY at the International Museum of Art in downtown El Paso.

 

*BOTH film venues are FREE of charge to the public.*

“The Art of Cinematography calls for so much experiment, necessitates so many kinds of activity and requires so much sustained attention, that I do not hesitate to say in all sincerity that it is the most alluring and the most interesting of all the Arts, for it makes use of virtually all of them—drawing, painting, the drama, sculpture, architecture, mechanics and manual labor of every sort are called into play in pursuing this extraordinary profession.”

                                                                           — Georges Melies 1861-1938, French Film Pioneer
