A movie filmed in Rockford is ready for the big screen.

SideWayz was written and directed by Domonique Henry, a Rockford local and released in August of 2017.

Henry created a sequel, aptly titled Sidewayz II. Henry stars in the movie too.

Filmed entirely in Rockford, SideWayz II is an "absolutely gripping story, displaying sheer human grit that should be seen and practiced by many, regardless of socio-economic or ethnic background." according to a press release.

SideWayz II will be screened in Rockford for everyone to see. Here's the deal, you need to get your tickets soon because seating is limited, and you can't buy them at the door. Both showings of SideWayz II are expected to be sold out.

You can see SideWayz II on Sunday, October 14 at AMC ShowPlace 16 on East State Street in Rockford.
