A note on the movie:
This is the first year for the Classic Chiller so we have no idea -- we are just running it up the flagpole to see who salutes. We aren't sure how many people will want to see the movie, so due to budget (WUMA is a non-profit and for public viewing, we leased the film, so we pay per number of audience members, so we couldn't go too big) and venue capacity, we need to limit tickets. Thanks.

One more thing... our first string face painter cancelled on us Wednesday and attempts to bring in a back up from the bench were unsuccessful, so no Madness face painter for 2009's Midnight Madness.
