4/17/2013 - ActionFest returns to Asheville with Homeward Bound benefit
by Ken Hanke - Mountain XPress
Beginning April 19, ActionFest will once again bring the best in world action cinema to Asheville -- this time with a monthly ActionFest Film Series, the first of which will benefit Homeward Bound.
The opening fight card of the world's first all-action theatrical film series is a double feature of epic proportions. From action star and visionary director Takeshi Kitano, we have the U.S. theatrical premiere of Beyond Outrage. (Plus an encore screening of its predecessor, Outrage, which made its U.S. debut at the 2011 ActionFest Film Festival.)
Join ActionFest at The Carolina Asheville, 1640 Hendersonville Road, on Friday, April 19 at 7 p.m. for two great action films plus complimentary pints of Ninja Porter donated by Asheville Brewing, plus complimentary soft drinks from Carolina Cinemas. All of the proceeds from the screenings will be donated to Homeward Bound, celebrating its 25th anniversary this year of providing pathways to housing for the homeless in Asheville. Suggested donation for admission is $10. Tickets are available now at Carolina Cinemas' box office or online at www.carolinacinemas.com.
