I was contact by Michelle Lutz who is involved with Harvey Milk Day event April 22nd at the Castro Theatre. The Castro has always been one of the best places to see a movie and adding in the real butter [not butter flavored oil] to the popcorn only makes it even better. I’ll let Michelle tell you more:
