Hobo With a ShotgunThe Midnite Movie Mamacita’s new Mesa theater, The Royale, opens (softly) Friday in conjunction with the downtown association’s monthly Second Friday street party. Christening the screen will be the Canadian action movie Hobo With a Shotgun, based on a winning trailer of the same name from Robert Rodriguez’s SXSW Grindhouse trailer contest and starring Rutger Hauer (Blade Runner, Batman Begins, Ladyhawke), Brian Downey (Lexx) and Gregory Smith (Everwood, A Wrinkle in Time, Small Soldiers).

Here’s a description:

A train pulls into the station – it’s the end of the line. A Hobo jumps from a freight car, hoping for a fresh start in a new city. Instead, he finds himself trapped in an urban hell. This is a world where criminals rule the streets and Drake, the city’s crime boss, reigns supreme alongside his sadistic murderous sons, Slick & Ivan. Amidst the chaos, the Hobo comes across a pawn shop window displaying a second hand lawn mower. He dreams of making the city a beautiful place and starting a new life for himself. But as the brutality continues to rage around him, he notices a shotgun hanging above the lawn mower… Quickly, he realizes the only way to make a difference in this town is with that gun in his hand and two shells in its chamber.

The film plays 8 p.m. Friday at The Royale, 108 W. Main St. Tickets cost $6. There will also be a hobo costume contest, with the winner receiving two passes to the International Horror & Sci-Fi Film Festival.
