ScreenTalk: Bad Reputation

Join us for a special presentation of Magnolia Pictures’ BAD REPUTATION, a documentary about legendary rocker Joan Jett featuring never-before-seen footage, ahead of its wider theatrical release. We’ll have Seasick Records doing a DJ set and selling some vinyl at the event. As always with Screentalk screenings, a panel discussion will follow the film. Tickets are $12 ahead of time, $15 at the door. VIP packages are available with reserved table, 2 drink tickets, and 2 tickets to the film for $60. This month’s ScreenTalk will be hosted at Iron City instead of Carrigan’s, our usual venue. We will be back at Carrigan’s for next month’s ScreenTalk!
