Due to unusually high winds that blew the screen down Saturday night, the Plaza Classic Film Festival’s outdoor presentation of Smokey and the Bandit was canceled before the movie’s completion.
The El Paso Community Foundation, which produces the festival, automatically will make full refunds to those who purchased tickets to Saturday’s drive-in movie at the El Paso Community College’s Valle Verde campus.
Patrons who purchased tickets will receive an email message regarding refunds, which should take 7 to 10 business days to process, beginning Monday, August 3, 2020. No action is required on the ticket holder’s part.
The movie will not be rescheduled.
The Plaza Classic Film Festival On Tour drive-in movie series will resume with tonight’s screening of The Birds at 8:30 p.m. August 2, 2020 at Camp Cohen Water Park (formerly Cohen Stadium).
