There will be a “local soccer and film culture” gathering on Friday, April 15. Organized by the Albuquerque Sol Football Club, this night of cinema and sports will take place at the old Lobo Theater (3013 Central NE) beginning at 7pm. The documentary Sons of Ben will be shown. The film is described as an “insightful” documentary about a small group of diehard soccer fans in Philadelphia who started a fan club for a team that did not exist. Eventually, they had 1,500 drum-banging, song-singing fanatics. Their grassroots effort led directly to the birth of an MLS franchise, the Philadelphia Union. Albuquerque Sol co-owner and president, Ron Patel, believes Albuquerque has the right atmosphere to foster a similar growth in professional soccer. Following the film screening, Sons of Ben cofounder Bryan James will join the audience for a Skype Q&A session to discuss best practices in building a true soccer culture. Tickets are $5 apiece and are available now at
