'Tiempo de Morir' was penned by the legendary Gabriel Garcia Marquez, and will celebrate its 50th anniversary at the Ford Theatre on Friday.

Here in Southern California, there are plenty of opportunities to see movies under the stars during the summer.  But few like the one happening Friday night at the re-opened Ford Theatre. 

That's where you can see a 50-year-old film written by the legendary author Gabriel Garcia Marquez. It's a Mexican western called "Tiempo de Morir," or "Time to Die."

The screening is taking place courtesy of the Libros Schmibros lending library in Boyle Heights.

Libros Schmibros founder David Kipen dropped by the studio with Rodrigo Garcia, son of Gabriel Garcia Marquez, to tell more about the film, and the event.

Rodrigo Garcia will kick off the night with a discussion about the film. For more information and tickets, click here
