Sneak Preview Benefit: see Milk at the Michigan theater Dec 18
I'm tempted to go to this...


You are invited to a special SNEAK PREVIEW of the highly-anticipated new film MILK, starring Sean Penn as gay rights activist Harvey Milk. Join us on Thursday, December 18 at 5:30 for a 70's themed reception featuring music by dj janks, a chocolate fountain from Schakolad, catering by DINE \aut\, a cash bar - even a disco ball! Gay rights activist Jim Toy will speak to the crowd and lead a march into the Theater before the film begins at 7:00 PM.

Sean Penn's "magnificent, career-topping" performance as Harvey Milk has been nominated for a GOLDEN GLOBE!

"Milk is a marvel." - A.O. Scott, New York Times

In 1977, Harvey Milk was elected to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, becoming the first openly gay man to be voted into public office in America. His victory was not just a victory for gay rights; he forged coalitions across the political spectrum. Milk’s platform was and is one of hope - a hero’s legacy that resonates in the here and now. Directed by Gus Van Sant and also starring Josh Brolin and James Franco. Rated R. 128 minutes.

Tickets ($25.00) are available now at Ticketweb.com, \aut\ BAR, Common Language Bookstore and the UM Spectrum Center.

The $25.00 ticket price will benefit HIV/AIDS Resource Center (HARC), WRAP Resource Center, UM Spectrum Center and the Michigan Theater Foundation.

Heh, they didn't get anyone to play Jim Jones. What a drag.
