One of my favorite events is almost here- the Plaza Classic Film Festival! I attend every year and look forward to the guests and films they show. This year, Academy award nominee- and the man with the epic 'stache and voice- Sam Elliott will return to El Paso! Elliott won't be alone this year though, his wife Katharine Ross will join him as the two speak before a 50th anniversary showing of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and The Legacy.

This will be the El Paso Community Foundation's 12th annual Plaza Classic Film Festival which takes place in or around the historic Plaza Theater in downtown El Paso. This year's festival runs from August 1st to August 11th. Now that the full schedule has been released it's time to make your plans to enjoy this year's selection of films. This year you'll get a wide variety of films and time to choose from.
