'Bomb City' Premiere Brings Hundreds to Performing Arts Center

The Amarillo premiere of "Bomb City" brought hundreds of Amarillo and Texas Panhandle residents to the Globe-News Center for the Performing Arts on Tuesday night.

On Tuesday night, "Bomb City" premiered in Amarillo after wrapping up a successful festival run. The film tells the true story of the 1997 death of Amarillo teenager Brian Deneke. "Bomb City" was produced in 2017 and earned critical acclaim at multiple festivals and venues. Filmmakers brought the film to Amarillo for a special premiere ahead of its limited theatrical release and digital video release on February 9th.

At the premiere, CJ Ramone of the Ramones was on hand to host the event, which concluded with a question and answer session that featured the cast and crew from the film, as well as Deneke's family members.

A portion of the proceeds from the film's screening benefited Family Support Services in Amarillo.

If you missed the film's premiere at the Globe-News Center on Tuesday night, you still have a chance to see "Bomb City" when it hits the screens at the Premiere Cinema Westgate Mall on February 9th.
