A Flamin’ Hot Opportunity!
Whatever the truth, it’s refreshing to watch a movie about an entrepreneur who is not white, did not invent an app, end up in prison, or resign in disgrace. Longoria proves to be an immensely adept and funny storyteller.
Reserve your tickets!
THURSDAY, June 1st @ 7:30pm
FRIDAY, June 2nd @ 7:30pm, followed by a Q&A
If you aren’t able to make it to the exclusive screening, not to worry! There are other screenings of the movie of the summer at locations across the country. Secure your tickets today!
