Gather with us for the Minneapolis premiere of the award winning short film Road to Hope, a film shining the light on the reality of child sex trafficking in the United States. This premiere will also feature discussions with a variety of people working on the front line of the fight to bring an end to sex trafficking in the United States.
Thanks to our generous sponsors we are able to keep ticket costs low AND all proceeds from ticket sales will go directly to an amazing nonprofit working to end sex trafficking, Grace Place School. Additional donations can be submitted to Grace Place School HERE.
Join us for this powerful evening and learn how YOU can help save a life and fight for hope and freedom.

Do I have to buy my ticket(s) in advance?
We would greatly appreciate if you did buy them in advance. However, if you were abducted by aliens and were unable to purchase them in time, we will have a person on site who can sell you a ticket (please bring exact change or a credit card). But please, pre-purchase them and avoid aliens.
Can I just donate the $5 directly to Grace Place School?
The ticket sales (minus the fees from Eventbrite) will do directly to Grace Place School, we need everyone to purchase a ticket for the event via Eventbrite. We encourage you to STILL donate over the $5 to Grace Place School and you can do that via THIS LINK and we will have a computer at the event all ready to allow you to make a donation to Grace Place School.
Will you feed me?
YES! Well, you need to feed yourself. What good is a movie premiere without movie concessions! You will be able to purchase coffee, espresso drinks, soda, water, popcorn, and candy. If you are looking to grab some dinner before the event HERE is a list of nearby restaurants.
Is the theater handicap accessible?
Yes it is, with dedicated seating to accommodate wheelchairs on the main level. The bathrooms are also handicap accessible.
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
Parking in Minneapolis can be… um, fun sometimes. There isn’t much going in in the Loring Park area on a Thursday night so finding street parking should be easy.
BUS: You can take the bus and it will drop you off within a block of the theater. Metro Transit Routes 11, 17 or 18 will get you there.
METERS/STREET: There are 2 types of meters in the area, along Nicollet some are active until 10pm but some parts of Nicollet and some side streets they end at 6pm so you can save money on those. All meters are the fancy credit card ones, save your quarters for popcorn. And you may be able to find unmetered parking is the neighborhood streets nearby.
RAMPS: There are some parking ramps that will be costly, closest is the Loring Ramp at 1330 Nicollet Ave S, cost could be $12-$16.
There is a dropoff spot right in front of the theater if needed… and there is always Uber!
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
You can bring your printed ticket or save a branch by pulling the electronic ticket up on your mobile device so we can scan the bar code when you arrive at the event.
The name on the registration/ticket doesn’t match the attendee. Is that okay?
Not a problem, we are trusting people… as long as you have a ticket (paper or electronic) you are good to go.
What is the refund policy?
Tickets are not refundable, but please know that proceeds from your ticket(s) went to Grace Place School and every dollar helps them provide important services to at-risk youth.
