Newcomers II of San Dieguito held an “Academy Awards Luncheon Party” Feb. 20 at Fairbanks Ranch Country Club. The event was organized by “Girlfriends,” a committee of four ladies within Newcomers who plan events and functions for the members.

Andy Friedenberg served as the Academy Awards guest speaker. Friedenberg started the Cinema Society in San Diego 30 years ago at the old Flower Hill Promenade theater in Del Mar with 30 people. Now, years later, it’s 800 strong and has moved to the new ArcLight Cinemas at UTC in La Jolla.

Event attendees dressed as their favorite movie star, dressed for the red carpet, dressed as a fan, or wore top hats and tails.
