It may be raining outside, but INSIDE, there are MOVIES!
Dear Film Friends and Supporters:
Just a reminder that we've got TWO fabulous film screenings taking place right here in downtown Lowell starting TONIGHT with our partnership with Lowell National HIstorical Park for a "Pickles in Fact & Film" event -- fascinating!
And next Tuesday, we're so proud to present one of our favorite independent films, Earthwork, which is making the rounds to major theaters in the country. We're glad to say that we got it here FIRST for a sneak preview in Lowell before it hits local theaters -- mark your calendars for this great FREE film event on September 13!
Thank you so much for your support and stay dry out there!
Your friends in film,
Suzz & Brett Cromwell
We hope to see you at the movies in the next 8 days!
