TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

It is always fun to watch a movie and recognize the surroundings, and there is a new movie premiering tomorrow night that will enable residents to do just that.

"Hot Bath an' a Stiff Drink" was filmed in and around the Tucson area. 

Tucson News Now caught up with Matthew Gratzner, the movie's director, and Jeffery Patterson, the movie's producer and the actor portraying the main characters.

The movie is a western, set in the years after the Civil War.  Twin brothers are separated as children and grow up in separate lives, one a U.S. Marshal, the other an outlaw. 

Tucson is an ideal location to film a western, according to Gratzner, with the mountains, and old west towns to film in.  Old Tucson, Mescal and Gates Pass were just a few of the areas where Hot Bath was filmed.  Over 120 locals were also hired as background and some of the principal characters. 

For those interested in seeing the movie there will be a screening Thursday night at the Fox Theatre at 7:30 p.m.  Tickets are $10 with the proceeds benefiting the Arizona Film in Media Coalition.  Parents the movie does have a PG-13 rating.
