Val Kilmer Presents Cinema Twain

When: Wed., May 31, 8 p.m. 2017

Actor Val Kilmer isn’t a stranger to portraying real-life men in history. From playing musician Jim Morrison in the 1991 biopic The Doors to gunslinger Doc Holliday in the 1993 Western Tombstone to porn star John Holmes in the 2003 crime drama Wonderland, Kilmer has made these types of performances some of the cornerstones of his extensive career over the last 30 years. In Val Kilmer Presents Cinema Twain, which is a 90-minute film version of his one-man stage show Citizen Twain, Kilmer takes on a new real-life persona in Mark Twain, 19th century American writer and humorist, best known for his novels The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. During the satirical performance, Kilmer, who considers Twain “an honorary Founding Father,” waxes philosophical on politics, family and faith. On Wednesday, Kilmer will be in attendance to introduce Cinema Twain to a San Antonio audience for the first time. The film will be followed by a Q&A session with Kilmer, and a meet and greet for VIP ticket holders.
