Blog Release: Bottle Shock Recap

From Steeltown Entertainment Project:

Dear Friends of Steeltown:

On behalf of Steeltown Entertainment Project, I would like to thank each and every of you that attended our "Bottle Shock" premiere party and fundraiser on the evening of August 21st at the South Side Works Cinema. The event was a great success, as over 180 of you attended and were able to experience the flavor of a Hollywood-style film premiere! Complete with a red carpet walk prior to the screening, a Q&A period with the film's producers Marc and Brenda Lhormer, and an after screening party, we all enjoyed the company of the fellow guests and the delicious food and wine provided to us by Tusca Global Tapas and Kunde Estate Winery & Vinyards.

Congratulations once again Marc and Brenda! Our special thanks to you both for working in conjunction with Steeltown to premiere "Bottle Shock" in Pittsburgh. We wish you continued success! For those who missed the event last Thursday, "Bottle Shock" is still playing at theatres in the Pittsburgh area, including:

• South Side Works Cinema - 12:15pm, 2:30pm, 5:00pm, 7:45pm, 10:15pm

• AMC Lowes at the Waterfront - 1:35pm, 4:20pm, 6:55pm, 9:25pm
