Wyrd War welcomes action hero maverick Fred “The Hammer” Williamson to the Hollywood Theatre for a rare 35mm screening of his ass kicking pièce de résistance Black Caesar (1973)!

Discerning genre enthusiasts have come to adore Fred Williamson’s bold screen persona as a thundering reverberation of Sidney Poitier’s iconic smack to the face of American racism… except “The Hammer” strikes with clenched fists! His gritty breakout hit BLACK CAESAR, a remake of LITTLE CAESAR (1931), directed by exploitation auteur Larry Cohen, reimagines the pathologically ambitious hoodlum archetype as a swaggering criminal who hustles his way up the food chain, wages war on the Mob, and builds a precarious empire of dirty money, bloody revenge, and very bad karma. Boasting an electrifying score by James Brown, BLACK CAESAR is a high-water mark in the cannon of so-called Blaxploitation films that dominated grindhouses throughout the '70s. Spend the night with... the Godfather of Harlem!

Autograph signing starting at 6:30pm (autographs are $20, cash only). Film at 7:30pm, followed by a Q&A.
