No, Pomona still doesn’t have a single movie theater. Nevertheless, its Fresh Air Flicks series this month on an inflatable outdoor screen in downtown’s Thomas Street Plaza is filling in the gaps in my cinematic knowledge.
The past two Fridays introduced me to “Back to the Future” and “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” neither of which I’d seen, having felt a bit old for them when they were released.
Tonight brings “Roman Holiday,” the William Holden-Audrey Hepburn movie, and I’m not sure what my excuse is for never having seen that one.
Perhaps I’ll come up with one before the movie’s 8:30 p.m. start. Bring a lawn chair and enjoy.
