The night encompasses a wide range of movies and difficulty levels (you don't need to be a movie buff) – all wrapped up in a bonus escape room-style mystery.

Most importantly, this event is our primary fundraiser for the year, with tons of exciting prizes from generous sponsors around town to be won. Give it a try – you won't be disappointed!
