Michael K. Williams
Mural Reveal

5:00 pm

Join us at Midtown Cinema as we honor the legend responsible for FACTS' existence, Michael K. Williams.

In 2004, Michael K. Williams planted the seed in FACTS' founder, Johntrae Williams, of envisioning Central PA as a hub for film production.

On September 6th, the 3rd anniversary of his passing, we will honor his legacy through a mural reveal painted by none other than Dionn Renee.
