I was trying to get online info. about the Summer series films on Civic Plaza (Civic Cinema?) earlier today, with no avail. The one website that seemed to have some basic info. gave me the message that the website was at capacity with visitors at that time. I am perplexed as to why this event isn't publicized more. Last year I went to 4 of the 5 free films on Civic Plaza--and on the first film night, there were literally about 30 people who showed up to watch, while hundreds of chairs sat empty. Perhaps the city should consider beefing up its website promotions for this event. Does anyone have information related to these films?

Looks like Civic Cinema is currently being promoted on the homepage of cabq.gov. Here's a direct link to info on Civic Cinema

Your question about beefing up website promos is a good one and something that the City bureaucracy struggles with. Most decision makers still aren't actually aware that there is such a thing as the internet and those that are aware don't have the budget or staff to deal with it properly.

I used to be the web managing editor for the City website and struggled with creating a citizen-focused, accurate, and timely site despite the issues mentioned above. Despite what the data say about internet usage, folks are still focused on telephone-based services such as 311.
