How are you able to offer this movie for free? We are able to offer this movie for free because of the support of our wonderful sponsors. First A.C.T., the Florida Theatre’s young professional networking group, is volunteering their time to coordinate the event, and the Florida Theatre is absorbing the administrative overhead as a community service.
Where will the food go? The food will be received by Feeding Northeast Florida, our community’s food bank and a partner of Feeding America.
