  1. I want to correct a typo in the E-mail addresses for the San Pedro Film Society and the Warner Grand websites.

    Their correct addresses are:

    http://www.sanpedrofilm.org
    http://www.warnergrand.org

    http://www.theminutemen.com is still the best site for info on the show and the only place to buy advance tickets. The trailer is visible there, as well. See you at the show!

    FYI, The San Pedro Film Society is also playing Emma Mae (Black Sister’s Revenge) tonight at 8, at the Warner Grand, with Jamaa Fanaka, director as our special guest.
