A Halloween night party in Pomona is set for Saturday, with the goal of raising money for the Friends of the Fox organization to bring movies back to the Fox Theater.
I couldn’t get more details late Wednesday, but my understanding is that the theater, now used mostly for concerts, isn’t currently equipped to project films. (*Correction: It can project DVDs but doesn’t have working film projectors.) I know the Friends group would like to offer occasional screenings.
I’ll try to update this post on Thursday with more information. (*That update is essentially John Clifford’s response in the comments section.)
Anyhow, the fundraiser, cleverly dubbed “Silver Scream,” is a movie-themed Halloween costume party. It starts at 8 p.m. at the Acerogami, otherwise known as the Glass House Bar, at 228 W. 2nd St., Pomona, just west of Thomas Street.
Dress up as your favorite actor or movie character. Costumes are required for entry — although I suspect they won’t be too particular — and the suggested donation is $10. Since it’s a bar, entry is for those 21 and over.
