HD movie premiere event in LA @ Silver Screen Theater, Pacific Design Center
Jul 27 @ 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM

On May 18, 2017 the world experienced a moment in history – HDdennomore, where Huntington’s disease was hidden no more. For the first time, HD patients and families met with Pope Francis to bring awareness to HD and remove the stigma associated with the disease. They made a film around the event and YOU are invited to the world premiere of the film! “Dancing at the Vatican” tells the story of a seemingly impossible, cross-continental journey made by South American HD families to meet Pope Francis in Rome.

When: Saturday, July 27, 2019, 6-7:30 p.m. Doors open at 5:30. A cocktail reception follows from 7:30-9:30 p.m.

Where: Silver Screen Theater, Pacific Design Center, 8687 Melrose Ave., West Hollywood, CA 90069.

Admission: FREE! Suggested donation of $10. Proceeds benefit Factor-H, a non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing the quality of life of Latin American families affected by HD.

Please register and learn more at https://www.dancingatthevatican.com.

It’s an open invitation, so the more the merrier.  Please feel free to invite friends!
