Under a Blood Red Sky screening canceled

Update, 9/24/13: If you haven't heard yet, this special screening of U2's Under a Blood Red Sky has been canceled. According to the Denver Film Society, after conferring with the Feys, it was determined that any fundraising efforts would be better directed to raising funds for flood victims. All credit card purchases will be automatically refunded; refunds for tickets purchased otherwise will be available at place of purchase. A memorial screening of the film will be part of next season's Film on the Rocks series.
