In 2009, Chapman President Jim Doti and Orange County Register reporter Marla Jo Fisher were talking movies. Marla commented that no one appreciates the old black-and-white films, especially her kids. And of course, President Doti is a big fan of the classics. And then voila! A film festival was born! Fellow film fan Dr. Jerry Price, Chapman dean of students, joined the marquee a year later. Hence the name.
Bottom line: Come see the classics!
