Cinema La Placita has been showing free children’s films ever since this 2nd Saturday Downtown event started up on May 8, 2010, usually at the large empty lot on E. Congress between Stone and Scott. For a while with the Sun Link streetcar construction, they moved the movies to E. Jackson Street, south of E. Broadway. And now they will deput their outdoor films at the Historic Depot on Toole Ave. Congratulations to organizer Erika O’Dowd for her tenacity in keeping their popular summer film series and this 2nd Saturday viewings going for so long.
