"A Billion Lives" to Debut at UA

A documentary that explores corruption amongst government officials, pharmaceutical companies, and health officials will be playing at the UA Amarillo Star Theater, tomorrow.

The award winning film, "A Billion Lives" is being brought to Amarillo by Frank Blankenship, and the Lucky Ruckus Vape Group. Blankenship tells The Amarillo Pioneer that this "one night only" event is not one to be missed.

"A Billion Lives is a global award winning documentary that highlights complete government failure," Blankenship tells us, "The United Nations World Health Organization projects that a billion people will die prematurely from smoking, this century. This documentary takes a critical look at smoking and the current situation where healthier alternatives are banned or restricted, while cigarette trade is continually protected."

Tickets for "A Billion Lives" are available through

The film opens tomorrow night, at 7:30pm.
