Cucamonga Revisited

More information about the upcoming Cucamonga Years documentary:

By the end of 2005, filmmaker Fiorenza of Pasadena and producer Miley of Whittier plan to wrap up two years of exhaustive research, culminating in a documentary that celebrates the artists and bands that passed through the Pal studio during its heyday.[…]
In the end, Fiorenza said he hoped the documentary would leave a sense of artistic culture, a source of pride for the community of Rancho Cucamonga.
“If you’ve grown up in a town like this, it’s really lame as far as culture,” he said. “For kids that want to do more arts and theater, it’s not the place to be. … There’s no sense of history, and that kind of bothers me. No sense of self.”
