Alhambra: Sacramento's Palace of Fantasy Documentary Screening
Proceeds will benefit the education program and operating funds of the Opera House. The 70-minute documentary tells the story of Sacramento’s beloved Alhambra Theatre, a million dollar temple, built in 1927 for moving pictures and the arts. The story is told with compelling interviews, pictures and newly-found archival footage. Co-producers Matías Bombal and Chad E. Williams rendered the pieces of this historical puzzle into a compelling story arc of Sacramento’s pride and, later, shame. Program begins at 12:30 p.m. with guided tours of the opera house. The movie begins at 2 and will be followed by a Q&A with the producers. A reception with no-host bar concludes the afternoon outside on Heritage Plaza. Tickets available at the box office (530) 666-9617, on the day of the event, or online at http://woodlandoperahouse.org/event/alhambra-sacramentos-palace-of-fantasy-documentary-screening/
