Drats! We're already booked for Sunday, but are sure hoping similar Fox-based family events will take place in the future :)

Friends of the Pomona Fox would like to thank everyone who made it to the screening. Over 700 Pomonans showed up the Oz screening, with the majority of them also taking the tour of the facility. They got to see the projection booth, rooftops, greenroom, and backstage areas.

Probably the only hitch in the day was that our rented Popcorn machine had a hard time keeping up with the demand. We're working on it for the next time.

We're hoping to be able to do similar programs about once a month beginning in May.

Again, thank you to all who came and supported Friends of the Pomona Fox.
