Critically Acclaimed and Highly Anticipated Movie “Bomb City” Released in Theaters and On Demand February 9th, 2018
On February 9th, "Bomb City" stars and punk icon CJ Ramone gathered in Los Angeles for a premiere and sold out theatrical release of the critically acclaimed and highly anticipated movie "Bomb City".
Set in 1997, "Bomb City" depicts the true story behind a controversial hate crime that divided the nation. In the film, director Jameson Brooks deconstructs two parallel worlds of the punks and the preps of Amarillo, Texas. "I'm excited to finally share "Bomb City" with LA, Brooks says. "This is where we start the movement against intolerance...Where we spread the message of unity...Where we celebrate the main character, Brian Denekes', legacy with the world."
Throughout the film, the radical appearances of the punks stir social intolerance within the community, particularly with a group of high school football jocks known as "white-hatters." After losing a football game, the white-hatters have an altercation with several punks, igniting a series of hostile encounters between the two groups. One evening, these encounters climax with a horrific, violent street fight that would soon become notorious for being one of the most controversial hate crimes in modern American culture.

"Under the direction of Jameson Brooks, the film is impressively even-handed. There's no equivocating aside from the arguments of the defense attorney, and a sense of unease is sustained through the entire film via muted visuals and an impressively spare score (written by Cody and Sheldon Chick)." The Daily Beast
