Academy Award-winning writer/director/producer/actor Quentin Tarantino will preside over a special presentation of POSSE, the feature film starring Kirk Douglas, Bruce Dern, Bo Hopkins, James Stacy and David Canary on Sunday, February 7 at 1:30 pm at the Lobero Theatre in Santa Barbara.  Douglas also directed the film.  Following the screening, Tarantino will moderate a Q&A session with Douglas for the audience.
Posse was released in 1975. Douglas starred as Howard Nightingale, a United States Marshal hunting down an outlaw so as to further his political career.

The only way for the posse to pay the $40,000 ransom in order to free Nightingale is by becoming bank robbers themselves.
