Plaza Classic Film Club

For some, cinema appreciation begins early and one of the goals of the Plaza Classic Film Festival is to cultivate a new generation of classic film viewers. The Plaza Classic Film Festival once again offers a club to bring together teens looking to see and discuss some great films. The Plaza Classic Film Club is seeking up to 25 high school students ages 14 to 18 to be a part of its Film Club. Club members will receive full access to all of the Plaza Classic Film Festival’s screenings as well as some special presentations and tours of the historic Plaza Theatre. Plaza Classic Film Club Passes are available for $100.


We try to keep our prices low, noticeably lower than a first-run movie theater, so anyone from any income level can attend. Matinees in the Plaza Theatre are $6. Evening shows in the Plaza are $8, with $10 for special guest appearances. A limited number of seats are available for $20 for the opening night VIP/Sponsor showing on the first Thursday of the Festival.

Philanthropy Theatre movies are $4. The Mills Plaza Drive-In/Walk-Up movies are $5 at the door. Friday-Saturday outdoor movies are free.

In early July, tickets may be purchased in advance at the Plaza Theatre box office, Ticketmaster outlets and Ticketmaster.com.
