Rocktown premieres in Harrisonburg, Virginia

The new documentary from Paper City Films premiered in Harrisonburg, VA to a standing room only crowd at the 250-seat Court Square Theater. Our apologies to the many latecomers who were turned away because of the theater's fire code. About twenty people watched the 1hr36m film standing up...here are some photos from the event:
