YAKIMA, Wash. -- A feature film produced locally makes its premiere Saturday at the Capitol Theatre.

"White Roses" is a murder mystery that looks at issues of domestic violence. The director says parts of the script came from personal experiences. Josh Hodgins and his mother are survivors of domestic violence.

Hodgins says shooting the film here was a no-brainer.

"Well, I love making movies at home. There's so much support from the community, places like the Sub Shop here where we're at," said Josh Hodgins, the writer and director. "They open up their doors to us, let us come down here and make movies. And, the people are amazing! They'll literally give you the shirt off their back, and you know you don't get that in big cities."

You can buy tickets online or at the ticket office. Proceeds will support local domestic violence programs at the YWCA.

The doors will open at 6 p.m., and the movie will start at 7.
