Downtown Issaquah is poised to host a film festival in September, as the municipal Arts Commission shows a series of musicals on the silver screen.

The inaugural Issaquah Film Festival is scheduled for Village Theatre’s First Stage Theatre, 120 Front St. N., from Sept. 14-16.

The lineup includes Busby Berkeley’s “Footlight Parade” and the disco farce “Can’t Stop the Music” — a pseudo-biography of the Village People. The Beatles’ groundbreaking “A Hard Day’s Night” concludes the festival.

Tickets cost $10 per night or $25 for the entire festival. Find tickets and information at

The event also includes a VIP reception featuring wine from local winery Twin Cedars, guest speaker Howard A. DeWitt and Beatles music by Undercover.

DeWitt, a professor emeritus at Ohlone College in Fremont, Calif., has written 21 books, including “The Beatles: Untold Tales,” “Paul McCartney: From Liverpool to Let It Be” and “Beatle Poems.”
