We are holding a raffle after the premiere screenings of "Worldly Possessions" (a short film) and "Athena" (a feature length motion picture).

50% of of all ticket sales will be donated to  (CRI) in memory of the writer of "Athena" Michael Louis Calvillo and June Filion, the director's mother.
  The other 50% will go toward achieving film festival and market placement of both projects.

We welcome those who cannot be present to purchase tickets.


Event Information:

Brad Hord, Robert W. Filion and the Don Gibson Theater cordially invite you to a night of bloodcurdlingly exquisite entertainment featuring the very first screenings of "Worldly Possessions" (a short written by Brad Hord and directed by Robert W. Filion), and "Athena" (a feature length motion picture written by Michael Louis Calvillo and directed by Robert W. Filion).  Following which you'll meet the attending cast and crew who'll answer some questions, and draw winners on our raffle (described below).

The event will take place on October 11th at the Don Gibson Theater (318 S Washington St, Shelby, NC 28150) with doors opening at 6pm.  A meet and greet will commence during which guests can enjoy a cash bar; the show will start promptly at 7pm.  Tickets are $5 in advance, or $7 at the box office the day of the show, but hurry as seats will sell out quickly.

Get your EVENT tickets here!

Please feel free to post this information to your wall and ask your friends and family members to attend as well.

Cast, crew and contributors of both pictures are invited to attend at no cost... this will be the only screening we can guarantee a seat at no cost for either project.  Simply RSVP immediately to secure your seat; should you fail to do so, you may have to purchase a ticket, or if the screening is full, may be turned away at the door.

Thank you all so much for your continued support, and we'll see you at the movies.
