In celebration of "Madison County Reads: Wicked City by Ace Atkins," we will screen the movie "The Phenix City Story." In this semi-documentary, an Alabama town is run by a crime syndicate that's grown fat on prostitution and crooked gambling, directed at soldiers from Fort Benning across the river. Lawyer John Patterson, back from the army, is triggered by what he sees to join the reformers with a plan: to run his father Albert for state attorney general. The syndicate responds with escalating violence: is no one safe?

Credits are preceded by a 'newscast' containing spoilers.
