Posted by on Tue, Dec 9, 2008 at 9:59 AM

From the Rialto's website: MILK opens at RIALTO on Friday, December 12th!  There will be a special premier showing on Thursday, December 11th at 8pm.  Tickets for this show are $10.00 each, with proceeds going to the LGBT Center of Raleigh.   Tickets for this show will go on sale at 6:30pm the day of the show at the Rialto box office.  Remember, the Rialto is cash only!
