Notes from the Special Preview Screening of Need For Speed (February 19)

On February 19th, members of the 567 club were invited to a special prescreening of the new Dreamworks film Need For Speed starring Aaron Paul. Fun was shared by all, popcorn shared by some - and everyone who attended had a great time. Join the club to receive monthly newsletters, which does include the occasional perk like this one. Special thanks to Kasey Harkness of Dreamworks for supplying 20 Double-Guest passes to our club.
