“`Val Kilmer will appear in person to introduce the screening of his one-man play about Mark Twain Citizen Twain, playing to sold-out houses at several performing arts venues in Los Angeles. And now, the writer, actor, and director is on hand to present special film screenings of the play.

“`A master of reinvention, Kilmer transforms himself in a comedic and moving performance that is both contemporary and reflective. This piece is based on the life of Samuel Clemens, and of course, his writings as Mark Twain. From thoughts on politics (including his infamous disdain for the United States Congress),  to his family, and his faith, Twain spins a series of yarns with his timeless satire and incomparable wit.

“`Val’s breakout screen performance was in Top Gun with Tom Cruise. Other roles included as Doc Holliday in TombstoneSimon Templar in The Saint; the title character in Batman Forever; Jim Morrison in Oliver Stone’s The Doors; and Michael Mann’s Heat, featuring Al Pacino and Robert De Niro.

“`Mr. Kilmer will introduce the 90-minute movie, and conduct a question and answer period with the audience, following the screening. VIP ticket holders will have the chance to meet, chat, and take photos with Val after the Q&A.

“`Upcoming screenings are scheduled at Landmark Regent in Los Angeles on February 9th; Oxnard Levity Live on February 13th; Pasadena’s Laemmle Playhouse on February 16th; and Long Beach City College / Liberal Arts Auditorium (Bldg J) on February 24th and 25th.

Until next time>                               “never forget”
