While our allotment of advance tickets has sold out online, additional tickets will be available to purchase at the door the night of the show, first come, first served.
Double crossed and left for dead, a professional hitman (Charles Bronson) vows revenge after his release from prison. When the trail leads him to New Orleans, he finds his former girlfriend (Bronson’s real-life wife Jill Ireland) and a powerful crime boss (Telly Savalas) who may be behind it all. Featuring a classic score by Ennio Morricone, a fast-paced screenplay co-written by Lina Wertmüller, and stellar direction from Sergio Sollima (The Big Gundown, Face to Face), The Family (aka Violent City) is a tough-as-nails gangland saga that explodes on screen.

The low budget crime film that Robert De Niro watched and recommended to Martin Scorsese, who would then cast co-stars Joe Pesci and Frank Vincent in Raging Bull, GoodFellas and Casino! Joseph Cortese stars in Family Enforcer as a Mafia-connected hood, recently released from jail and rising in ranks as a vicious & intimidating debt collector. The mean streets just got meaner!
