  1. Hi! I was wondering if it would be possible to get a virtual link to watch the film. We are registered to go tomorrow night but would rather watch virtually if that is possible. Thank you!

    • Once you registered by email they sent a link to get signed in and watch, but I never saw a follow-up link so you could watch the video later… I missed it too!
