The movies will all start at 9 p.m. with the local musical flavor getting underway at 7:30 p.m. This year’s Plaza Classic theme is women filmmakers, so all four of the artists are female solo artists or female-fronted bands.

Unlike Plaza Outdoor, the parking garage movies are not free, but at $5 per movie are definitely affordable. door.
