Update: January Event Cancelled
Unfortunately we have to cancel our event scheduled for January 8, 2018. Due to scheduling at the Riverside Movie Theater, On The Basis of Sex will not be showing on this date. We are disappointed as we know this would have been a great night. We are hopeful that the movie will make its way to Reno very soon and we can look at rescheduling our movie outing for another date.
In the meantime, we will process refunds to those who had already purchased tickets.
Save the Date: February 26, 2019
