We have less than 20 tickets left for the screening! If you don't have your ticket yet, I suggest you buy it now, as we may be sold out by tomorrow.

Our thanks to our sponsor, MadAboutMovies.net. Check out up-to-date movie reviews of current blockbusters and the seldom-heard-of. If the movie has been made, MadAboutMovies.net has probably seen it.
