Description

THE PALM SPRINGS CULTURAL CENTER seeks to improve the life and well-being of those who live in Palm Springs and, more broadly, the Coachella Valley, by enhancing their access to culture, broadly defined, and the arts. They are now presenting Cinema Diverse Selects with different gay themed movies.
