EL CENTRO — Coming tonight, not exactly to a theater near you: Local community leaders will star opposite professional actors in scenes from six popular films in an effort to raise money for a local charity.

The videos will premiere at 5 p.m. on Vo Neighborhood Medical Clinic’s Facebook page. The event is a fundraiser for the non-profit, which has been providing meals and other services for COVID-19 patients isolated at home and recently was selected administrator Imperial County’s Housing for the Harvest program.
