Oscar-Nominee Screened at Free Movie Night
Filmgoers are invited to a screening of the Oscar-nominated best feature documentary “20 Feet From Stardom” on Friday, Feb. 7. The 7 p.m. screening at the Forum Theatre, on Festival of Arts’ grounds at 650 Laguna Canyon Road, is free and open to the public as part of the city’s free film series.
The 91-minute film shines a spotlight on the untold true story of the backup singers behind musical legends.
“For three hours on a Friday, the movies create a micro-community of movie and art lovers. The theater is abuzz before and after with likeminded folks there to see and discuss a movie they probably wouldn’t have normally thought to see,” said local resident Mark Porterfield, who with Steve Chadima helps underwrite the series, now in its fifth year.
