Sleepover Girl Announcement:

The Sleepover Girl feature will no longer be a monthly feature in the magazine.  I will however include Sleepover Girls in future issues whenever we have someone who applies to be featured.  In other words, the feature isn’t going away completely, it’ll simply be relegated to a “whenever we have one” status.  I would still encourage anyone who’s interested to apply and we’d be happy to feature you in a future issue.

If you or anyone you know would like to become our next Sleepover Girl, there’s a whole info page set up to let you just how to go about it. So check it out and get in touch with us today.  You could be the next Rogue Cinema Sleepover Girl! Read…
