Coming To Theatres: The Salon

Coming to theaters on May 11th is The Salon starrring Vivica Fox, Darrin Dewitt Henson, Kym Whitley, Monica Calhoun, Taral Hicks, Dondre Whitfield, De'Angelo Wilson, Garrett Morris, Terrence Howard, Brooke Burns, Tiffany Adams, and Greg German.

The Salon is a sassy and heart-warming film for the entire family that will leave you howling in your seats! Based on Shelly Garrett’s hit stage play, Beauty Shop and written, produced and directed by Mark Brown (Barbershop), The Salon stars Vivica A. Fox (Jenny) as the inheritor of a neighborhood beauty salon. Jenny is being forced to sell her shop to the Department of Water and Power (DWP) due to eminent domain, and is being forced to accept the money she is offered for her property. Regardless of the legal advice Jenny receives, she refuses to let the corporate giant take the one remaining pillar of her inner city neighborhood. She declines the money and decides to take on DWP in court—all while keeping it from her salon’s outrageously funny and colorful employees and clientele.

A classic tale of the underdog, The Salon is a fresh look on the inside of a salon and inner city neighborhood where the unexpected happens and the “mom and pop” shop prevails! Hear what women really talk about behind closed doors ... Find out more at
