SCSRA/FRPA Special Events

Chattanooga Choo Choo

Our next members-only special event will be a screening of Chattanooga Choo Choo.

The Movie

"Chattanooga Choo Choo" stars George Kennedy and Barbara Eden, and is rated PG. Most of the film was shot on the Sierra Railroad, at the California State Railroad Museum, the Sacramento SP Depot and at the Railtown 1897 State Historic Park at Jamestown, California, and features Sierra No. 28, a 1922 Baldwin 2-8-0. As always, a cartoon will precede the feature.

The Venue

  • The theatre is in the Brea Plaza mall which is north of Imperial Highway between the 57 Freeway and Associated Rd.
  • There is ample free parking
  • The theatre phone number is (714) 808-0400

How to get there:

  • If you are coming from the south, exit the 57 Freeway at Imperial Highway and at the traffic light go straight ahead into the mall.
  • If you are coming from the north, exit the 57 Freeway at Imperial Highway, turn left and, after crossing the Freeway, make a left turn into the mall.
  • Once in the mall, turn left at the first stop sign (past Denny's), then right at the Italian Restaurant.
  • The Brea 5 Theatres are located behind Kinko's.

Getting your Complimentary Entry:

  1. Enter the theatre and look for our friendly faces at the ticket counter
  2. Upon showing your SCSRA or FRPA membership card, you and your party will receive copies of the printed program for the show.
  3. This printed program will be your "ticket" for the evening, giving you admittance to the show.

Be sure to visit the refreshment stand, as a night at the movies is best accompanied by your favorite "movie food," and the Brea 5 popcorn is quite good. Also, patronizing the refreshment stand is a tasty way to thank the Captain's Family Theatres for its hospitality.

Plan Ahead to Arrive On-time We suggest arriving between 7:00 and 7:30 p.m. In fairness to those who arrive on time (not to mention the associate staffing the ticket booth for your entry, who doesn't want to miss the show), there will be no admittance to the show after 7:40 p.m.

There will be a short introduction of the evening's films before the show starts, and your printed program will provide additional details about the films.

The show will end at approximately 9:30 p.m. Hope to see you there!
