West Coast premiere 
of Riding the Midnight Express with Billy Hayes — Billy Hayes recounts the true story of his arrest in 1970 at the Istanbul airport with two kilos of hashish taped to his body, his time in Turkish prisons and his brazen, harrowing escape from Imrali Island prison in the dead of night. It’s an epic journey of self-discovery: a cautionary, yet uplifting tale of desperation, determination and personal transformation. If you’ve seen the movie, you might think you know Billy’s story. But you probably don’t.
