Alhambra: Sacramento’s Palace of Fantasy; documentary screening

April 27 @ 12:30 pm - 5:00 pm

$25

FUNDRAISER AT THE HISTORIC WOODLAND OPERA HOUSE

The historic Woodland Opera House is proud to present a screening of the documentary, Alhambra: Sacramento’s Palace of Fantasy. Produced by Executive Producer Wendell P. Jacob, and Co-Producers Chad E. Williams & Matias A. Bombal.  Admission is $25 per person, and 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 for the afternoon consists of:

  • 12:30 pm; Guided tours of the historic Woodland Opera House
  • 2:00 pm; Movie will start promptly
  • Bombal and Williams will address the audience and hold a Q&A session following the screening
  • Reception (non-hosted) will resume in 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/
