This week, film buffs in northeast Kansas will get a chance to see filmmaker Nicholas Barton's new feature film, "Wichita". The film will screen at Liberty Hall Theatre in Lawrence, KS. on Tuesday, April 15; and at the Westport Coffee House in Kansas City, MO. on Friday, April 18 as part of the film's world release promotional tour.

"Wichita" is a western/thriller set in 1882 and tells the story of a mysterious fugitive who seeks revenge on the person who landed him in prison, a journey of fate that leads him to the peaceful town of Wichita, Kansas. The film stars Justin France, Karina Wolfe, and Blake Webb. The film was shot entirely in Kansas.

So far, the film has screened in select cities in Kansas and Oklahoma, but there are screenings booked through May across Kansas, Missouri, Colorado, and Texas. Tickets for the screenings this week are $10 and can be purchased at the Liberty Hall and Westport Coffeehouse box offices, receptively.

Running time: 107 minutes

Rating: Wichita is of a mature subject matter and is not suitable for all audiences. It contains adult content, mild language, violence, and a scene of brief nudity. Viewer discretion is advised.
