$5 Cover Roundup




The $5 Cover rollout picks up steam tonight as the 15-"track" series has its world premiere at Malco's Paradiso. There are screenings at 7, 7:15, 9:30, and 9:45. The three earliest screenings are currently sold out, but extra tickets may be available at the last minute and will be sold via a wait list at the door. There are some tickets still remaining for the 9:45 showing. Tickets can be purchased at the Paradiso box office starting at 3 p.m.

You can read about the series in our cover story this week, on the streets and on the web now.

Craig Brewer will also be interviewed a 5 p.m. today on The Chris Vernon Show at 730 AM. (Personal plug: you can hear me every Tuesday at 5 p.m. on the Vernon Show.)
