From our Friends at Heritage Square comes a SPECIAL SCREENING OF
“The Legend of Pancho Barnes and the Happy Bottom Riding Club”
FEBRUARY 25, at the LAEMMLE THEATER, PASADENA
This is the story of flamboyant but skilled female aviatrix of the 1920′s, Florence “Pancho” Barnes. This high-flying gal was born and raised in Pasadena, and used to go horseback riding with a young George S. Patton across the Alhambra plains (the ones in SoCal, not Spain). One of only two dozen female fliers in the U. S. at that time, she took part in barnstorming shows, competed in air races (and broke Amelia Earhart’s speed record), and was a movie stunt flier, friends with such legendary Hollywood folks as George Hurrell, Ramon Navarro, and Howard Hughes. This film is the first to detail the fascinating life of a woman who made many contributions to aviation and was so much a part of Southern California history.

This special screening benefits Heritage Square Museum and the Pasadena Museum of History.
$15/Matinee (5PM) and $20/ evening show. Evening ticket includes a reception at Vroman’s Bookstore, immediately next to the theater.

For tickets call (323) 225-2700, ext. 223

    I haven’t been a Southern Califronian since 1973, but this wonderful “All About…” series makes me wish I still was. It’s such an important thing, sharing and celebrating these theatres like this, to both educate and entertain the public, and heighten awareness. Resounding cheers to Ed Kelsey and all involved for their dedication to this project!
