Fresno Filmworks presents “Support the Girls”, a comedy written and directed by Andrew Bujalski. When the motherly and protective Lisa (Regina Hall) becomes the manager of a highway-side “sports bar with curves” she’ll do anything to protect her young female employees. Despite imposing a strong zero-tolerance policy against disrespectful customers and growing to love the restaurant, her optimism and faith in herself become tested when she encounters her toughest day on the job yet. Starring Regina Hall, Haley Lu Richardson and Shayna McHayle. Assistive listening services are not available for this film. Advance tickets cost $10 general and $8 for students and seniors, and they can be purchased by check or cash at the Tower Theatre box office, 815 E. Olive Ave. Visit FresnoFilmworks.org for tickets and details.
