More Films! More Great Music! More Fun!

As we move into fall here in the desert, we're still finding a lot of great activities for visitors and residents alike. We continue our tradition of hosting some of the best film festivals in the world, with both the Cinema Diverse and WUTI film festivals in the area this month.  And for something a little different, check out the free 1950's sci-fi movie screenings this month at Sunnylands. And of course, as always, we have some fantastic musical acts coming to our local venues. So come on out and visit us before all of our winter visitors return for season!
