With nineteen screenings, the festival is the largest outdoor film festival in California, and with free admission, is expected to draw upwards of 8,000 attendees. The festival pays tribute to women in film, and begins with a special “Leading Ladies” series.

Other classic films include Annie Hall, Harold and Maude, and Bringing Up Baby. Don’t miss the recently restored Mary Pickford silent shorts, with members of the Malibu Coast Chamber Orchestra performing the scores live. In addition, Distant Lands, the specialty travel bookstore in Old Pasadena will once again hold travel films.

The Old Pasadena Film Festival concludes with a screening of the 1968 George Romero classic; Night of the Living Dead; a must see (if you haven’t already that is.) All screenings are free and open to the public.

There are a wide range of films and genres, so there’s sure to be something for everyone. At the very least its a great opportunity to enhance your cinematic experience.
