Free Screening: Breakfast With Hunter

Friday, Feb 29, 2008. 7 PM. Admission: Free!

Location: 600 4th St, West Sacramento - that's the corner of 4th & F in West Sacramento, just over the river from downtown.

We've been working on bringing this to Movies on a Big Screen for a year and a half. Seriously. And now that it's finally happening, the best part is, it will be a free screening to show our appreciation for our friends and supporters!

If you haven't heard of this, we wouldn't be completely surprised, but it has been acclaimed as one of the best documentaries on Hunter S. Thompson, featuring Johnny Depp, John Cusack, Benecio del Toro, Ralph Steadman, Alex Cox, PJ O'Rourke, Terry Gilliam, Warren Zevon (briefly), Jan Wenner and many others.

Long-time close friend and associate of Hunter, Wayne Ewing (director of numerous PBS docs for Bill Moyers) was allowed to film Hunter over a number of years. "Breakfast With Hunter" focuses primarily on the years leading up to and through the filming of "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas," as well as documenting the trumped up DUI charge against Thompson in 1995. Free of narration, Wayne's camera captured Hunter like no one else has, including footage of the good doctor causing chaos in the Rolling Stone offices, Hunter and Johnny Depp shooting heavy weaponry, and the infamous ugly script meeting with Alex Cox and Todd Davies where discussion quickly turned uncomfortably dangerous.

We've been trying to get this lined up for a very long time, and it's all finally come together thanks entirely to Wayne's generosity and help. And again, this is a free screening!
