Philadelphia Premiere
Tombstone Rashomon
(Dir. Alex Cox, 2016, USA, 83 min)

The Gunfight at the O.K. Corral only happened once, but has been tirelessly recreated in films, television shows and western towns ever since. No one has a monopoly on truth, and in Tombstone Rashomon, the truth is shared by six conflicting, yet historical perspectives. In doing so, the film’s narrative becomes prismatic and the result is perhaps the most comprehensive telling of the most important gunfight in American history.

Dubbed an attempt to create “the most comprehensive and unusual gunfight picture ever made” by director Alex Cox, Tombstone Rashomon uses Rashomon’s storytelling technique of multiple perspectives to shed a new light on the thoughts and motivations of those involved including Wyatt and Virgil Earp, Doc Holliday, and Colonel Hafford.

Writer/Director Alex Cox will be in attendance for a retrospective Q&A at the beginning of the program.  This will be followed by a meet and greet and an introduction to the film with cast members in attendance.

NOTE: This was originally scheduled for 10:00 PM, but has been swapped with the 7:00 PM program.
