“City of Lights” film premiere in Aurora May 25

DOWNTOWN AURORA - “City of Lights,” a film written by and starring Aurora native Martrell Webb will premiere at Aurora Public Art's third floor gallery on May 25.

The short film takes place in Aurora, and focuses on the musically talented but stubborn character Chase, who is struggling with the music industry, his personal relationships, and what he observes on social media. With this film, Webb looks to inspire others and showcase the architecture and landmarks of his home city

The Hollywood-style premiere of “City of Lights” will begin on the red carpet at 6 p.m. at 20 E. Downer Pl. in downtown Aurora. Live music from the film’s soundtrack will be performed, followed by the screening of the film at 7 p.m.

A reception with light refreshments will follow the screening. Formal attire is encouraged, in keeping with the old Hollywood ambience of the event. Free street parking is available and the gallery is walkable from the Aurora stop on the Metra BNSF line.
