SiCKO

Dear People of Pasadena and everyone else in the greater LA area,

I know you want to rush right out and see Michael Moore’s new film SiCKO, but wait. Please wait.

Please wait until Tuesday, July 10 at 5:00 p.m. There’s going to be a special screening of SiCKO at the Laemmle Playhouse 7 to benefit the Community Health Alliance of Pasadena (CHAP). For those who aren’t familiar with it, CHAP is a nonprofit medical and dental clinic in Northwest Pasadena that provides low cost, high-quality health care.

The suggested donation for tickets is $10, and after the screening there is going to be a panel discussion about the state of health care in California next door at Vroman’s Bookstore (or as my brother calls it, The Five Romans).

Here’s how to get tickets:

Call Ellen Johnson at 626-398-6300 ext. 21. If you get the machine, press *8 and then you can enter the extension number. She’ll take your info, and you can pick up the tickets at the theatre.

Only $10 suggested donation, people! Hope to see you there!

Here’s CHAP’s waiting room, taken by The Scout (site in progress). If you look closely, you can see his reflection.
