Attend the Red Carpet Premiere of Collide

Collide, the new motion picture from DMV filmmaker Master June Daguiso, will premiere this Sunday at the Burke Theater.

Collide will have its red carpet premiere this Sunday December 19 with showings at 11AM and 2PM. As of this writing, the 11AM showing is nearly sold out. Tickets are $15, but contact me for info on how to get in for half price.
