Thursday, November 20, 2014: Screening of "Muffin Top: A Love Story"

Muffin Top

Join us for the screening of Muffin Top: A Love Story at Cinebarre (1164 W. Dillon Road, Louisville) on Thursday, November 20 at 7:30 pm to benefit Life is Better Rescue. Tickets are only $11 and everyone will get a fabulous swag bag and meet cast and filmmakers.

About the movie: Muffin Top is a sweet, hilarious, real-world comedy about a woman (Suzanne) who finds herself in a crisis—her husband is leaving her for a younger, skinnier, and ultimately more pregnant co-worker. Suzanne, obsessed with the roll of fat above her too-tight pants, sets out to discover what is really important in life. Love hurts—cake helps. Eventually she learns to love herself now, not five pounds from now. Rated R.

About the event: this is a real Red Carpet Event, with a real red carpet. Get your picture taken with the director, chat with the writers, and there will be at least one cast member in attendance!

How to get your ticket. Pre-orders only—no tickets will be sold at the theater! Order your tickets today. Your credit card will not be charged until enough tickets are sold to hold the event, which means Life is Better Rescue will only receive its donation if the minimum is met!

Please come out, have a great time, and support animal rescue!
