Come join us at our monthly Film Series...
What began in June, 2000 as the first weekly Classic Film Series in the El Paso Southwest, returns as a monthly film series. It meets regularly on designated weekends every month (either on Saturday or Sunday) beginning at 6:30 pm at Ardovino's Desert Crossing in Sunland Park. The film viewing is FREE of charge to the public.
Hosted by life long film fan, historian, archivist, writer and collector Jay Duncan. When it comes to the magic of the motion picture, Jay enthusiastically shares his wealth of knowledge, personal exhibits of his own movie memorabilia and in-depth behind-the-scenes knowledge with each and every screening.
Join Jay as he hosts the series and relates how YOU can become a member of the newly formed “Sunset Film Society.” For more information and reservations, please contact Jay. An RSVP MUST be received by Monday prior to the event - SEATING IS BY RESERVATION ONLY!
NOTE: All presentations will include Added Attractions to simulate the original movie-going experience. It might be a cartoon, short, featurette or serial chapter.

• Historical background of each film presentation

“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
