Actor Val Kilmer will be screening his one-man play for one night only at the Rialto Theatre Saturday, August 5th.

According to a press release from the Rialto Theatre, Kilmer's show, Citizen Twain, played to two sold-out houses at several art venues in Los Angeles.

Kilmer transforms himself into the “First American,” Mark Twain, in a comedic and moving performance that is both contemporary and reflective. The piece is based on the life of the man, Samuel Clemens, and of course his writings as Mark Twain. From his thoughts on politics (including his famous disdain for the U.S. Congress), to his family and ultimately his faith and God, Twain spins a series of yarns with his timeless satire and incomparable wit.

Kilmer will introduce the 90-minute film and conduct a question and answer period with the audience.

Doors will open at 7:00 p.m. Visit the Rialto Theatre website for tickets.
