Here in Southern California, there are plenty of opportunities to see movies under the stars during the summer.  But few like the one happening Friday night at the re-opened Ford Theatre. 

That's where you can see a 50-year-old film written by the legendary author Gabriel Garcia Marquez. It's a Mexican western called "Tiempo de Morir," or "Time to Die."
