...the crew from Franklin Mortgage is going back to the well once again for a Sunday Movie Night event featuring the completely insane Cage/Travolta masterpiece Face/Off. There's gonna be cool drinks for just $11 a pop, pizza from the guys at Pitruco, Mike Treffehn and Catherine Manning behind the stick, and all the madness that comes of anything involving Nicolas Cage.
