Apologies for the technical issues at Transformers
Sincere apologies to those who made it to the showing of Transformers: Dark of the Moon tonight and had to sit through some of the technical difficulties. Flicks would like you to know we are planning on moving away from traditional 35mm film projection to all digital projection next quarter with the hope of eliminating technical difficulties like those we experienced tonight. We hope to see you at future showings with crisp and clean digital projection.
Change from the Rocky Horror Picture Show
Unfortunately, The Rocky Horror Picture show is not going to happen this Sunday, instead we will be showing the Nightmare Before Christmas. We unfortunately couldn't get actors to help act it out and make it the grand event we wanted it to be, especially since we had to it on a Sunday, so instead we've decided to show the Nightmare Before Christmas. We hope to see you at 8pm Sunday in CEMEX auditorium!
