CWC September Newsletter
The month that almost wasn't.
A few days ago I was considering postponing CWC's September films, a poor way to start a new season in a new venue. And, I was the cause – sucked in by a ploy that hijacked our computer and planted malware on the CWC website. You can imagine the mayhem – locked out of the website, changing hundreds of passwords, cancelling credit cards, rebuilding the web and local files that had not been backed up. Yum.
Now, much later than planned, everything is clean and we can send you to web pages that actually work. We'll present two films this month and roll into a robust October.
On the bright side, it's a great reason for making September Patron Appreciation Month. We'll offer discounted tix to CWC patrons as a way of saying thank you for past support and to encourage visits to our new venue at the Garfield Theatre, 719 Race Street downtown.
In addition to a price break on the tix, remember that your ticket stub will get you a 15% discount across the street at the Butcher & Barrel Restaurant.
Many thanks to Phil Armstrong for the beautiful interior photo, above. See more at Cincinnati Refined. Read about the films in the event listings below and check out the October schedule at the bottom.
Hope to see you soon,
