SLO Film Fest – Special film events coming…and going!

Does JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR’s Ted Neeley really want to move to SLO?  Watch this quick clip filmed before the movie on October 2nd. Thanks to all who came out to meet Mr. Neeley and see the musical on the Big Screen at the Fremont Theatre – it was a memorable evening!

There are more memorable evenings ahead too! Our last fall event is happening on Saturday, November 21 at 6pm. A NIGHT IN HAVANA will celebrate everything CUBA, from tropical cocktails to delectable food, to music, costumes and entertaining short films made in Cuba. To top it off, you can do some holiday shopping at the silent and live auctions offering a tempting array of merchandise, entertainment and travel.
