Java Heat

ActionFest is continuing their new line of monthly showings (sort of methadone to the full-bore heroin that is ActionFest). On Friday, May 17th at 7 p.m., they will be premiering Java Heat starring Kellan Lutz and Mickey Rourke. The suggested donation is $10 and proceeds go to Homeward Bound. If it is like last month, there will also be some sort of free food or beverage
