The owners of Yonemoto Physical Therapy are sponsoring a $1 summer film series at the Alhambra Renaissance Theater, the Pasadena Star-News reports. For the fourth year, Stan and Sheila Yonemoto are sponsoring the family themed film festival. Two PG or G rated films will be shown at 10 a.m. every Tuesday and Wednesday from June 21 to August 24. A tentative schedule can be found on their blog.
"It's summer and we live in a working class community, now kids get the chance to go to the movies and cool off and get a respite from the day," Stan told the Star-News. "I feel like you have a responsibility to try and give back to the community, this is the fourth time we do it and we'll do it a fifth time if they have it."
Assemblyman Mike Eng recently recognized the Yonemotos contributions to the community at a California Small Bussiness Day celebration.
