September’s screening will be on Sunday, the 25th starting at 5 PM. The location is The Other Door, 10437 Burbank Blvd, North Hollywood. The event is free and open to the public.

There is a Facebook page for this event, but it doesn’t update very often. You can also find this event on Meetup if you want to connect with other film lovers who will be attending.
