“Finders Keepers,” a new film set for streaming services in late June, has the “Real Rich” stamp of authenticity spanning from its producers and director on down to its stars and filming locations.

During a “Movie Night in the Rich,” the comedy will be premiered to the public Sat., June 4 from 6-8 p.m. at CoBiz Richmond, 1503 Macdonald Ave. in Richmond. The audience will be limited to 100 people. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased here.

The comedy, which stars Richmond natives Bud Bartlow and David “Kleck” Kleckley and was directed by another Richmond native, Raven Richardson, tells the story of Jaylin, who was recently released from prison for a crime he didn’t commit, per the filmmakers.

“As he focuses on doing the right thing, his two top priorities are his daughters. So, when his old friend, Reg, reaches out to help him get back on his feet with a new job, that is where the fun starts in this hilarious story about life,” they added. Richmond natives Prince Kareem Lang and Davita Shepherd also star in the film.

Other Rich City natives lending their talents to “Finders Keepers” include Writer/Executive Producer Stephen Ashford and fellow Executive Producer Don Griffin.

Locals will note many familiar city locations popping up in the film, particularly in downtown Richmond. According to the filmmakers, the comedy was “shot 89 percent in Richmond.” Check out the film’s trailer here.
