Hey Downhill Community... In the spirit of getting everyone together, watching vids, and having some serious fun, dropmachine.com is going to throw a movie event.
But not just any movie event.
I am renting the Royal Theatre, which is a big old full size movie theatre with full DTS sound. I will be showing 3 movies too, and good ones to boot. This will be the Toronto Premier of Halfway to Nowhere, Warwick Patterson and Ted Tempany's new Movie. These are the guys that did Rise, and Warwick is the guy behind the classic race movie, the Circus. Should definitely be a good show.
I will also have 2 of the best movies ever done, in THE COLLECTIVE and EARTHED. Thats right, all 3 on a full size screen, with full DTS sound.
Of course, we will also have prizes to give away, and a nice discount coupon for Toronto based stores for all in attendance. Dropmachine clothing will be there and available as well!
Event info is as follows::
