Film historian, educator, writer, archivist, publisher, collector and host Jay Duncan returns to Ardovino’s Desert Crossing with a new Drive In movie presentation for April.
“While the Sunset Film Society has been in intermission since March 14, 2020,” Duncan shares. “I am pleased to announce that the society returns on Sunday, April 25 with a Special DRIVE-IN presentation of A STAR IS BORN (2018) starring Bradley Cooper, Lady Gaga and Sam Elliott.”
“A Star is Born” is an Academy Award Winner for Best Original Song: “Shallow,” also the film was nominated for 8 Oscars, including Best Picture.
Duncan was the first to bring a weekly series of Classic Films to El Paso Southwest venues and provide historical background and encourage audience participation and discussion.
He shares that when he introduced his weekly television program “Jay’s Pix” on Saturday evening January 19, 1985 – on El Paso’s only independent television station, KCIK-TV Channel 14 – little did he realize that it would undergo a transformation leading to the formation of the Sunset Film Society in August of 2013.
Via El Paso’s very first film society, Duncan presents and celebrates “Films of Yesteryear,” featuring commentary, anecdotes and the facts behind the films.
