The Tempe History Society is showing its city on the silver screen.

Each Wednesday night this month, the group is showing movies that document Tempe at a specific point in time. The series kicked off with a screening of the 1940 movie "Marked Man" and continues Wednesday  with the 1976 film, "A Star is Born."

Historian Jay Mark joined The Show to talk about the idea behind a series of movies that specifically portray Tempe on screen.
