Photogenic Arcadia has been the backdrop for Hollywood movies for decades. Join us at the Gilb Museum of Arcadia Heritage in July and August for the 8th Annual “Arcadia at the Movies” program. A pre-movie talk about the movie and cast will be presented by film historian A.J. Downhower. Bring your lawn chair and a beverage–the Museum will provide the popcorn. Minors must be supervised.
