Come dressed in your jive 70s threads and celebrate bell bottoms with us for a special screening of Solomon King, shot in Oakland, CA.  CIA trained detective Solomon King has to use all of his dirty tricks and experiences to get revenge on the person responsible for the murder of his girlfriend. A trail leads him to a desert in the Middle East.

Join us on Sat. Feb. 11 for a special Q & A with Belinda Burton-Watts, wife of filmmaker Sal Watts after the film. Belinda appears in Solomon King at the end of the film, and much of the film was shot in their house and businesses they owned in and around Oakland Solomon even drives Belinda's Maserati in the movie!  She has incredible stories about her and Sal's lives and the making of the movie.
