Many desert residents were devastated when Cinemas Palme D’Or shut its doors last June. The closure was sure to end the filmmaker Q&A series that had made the theater a southern California draw. Now, the new owners of the theater – Tristone Palm Desert Cinemas 10 will be ushering an Oscar-caliber Q&A featuring “Moonlight” star Ashton Saunders. The event takes place this Saturday night after the 6:30 pm screening and will be moderated by KNEWS personality Bill Feingold.
Now, it is time for those who filled the seats before to return, as this is no better way to tell Tristone that we appreciate their work to continue this tradition! Seats are first come, first served and tickets can be purchased via Fandango at this link: Tickets
