Join us for a screening and conversation about the Texas based film, Red River.

Red River, though filmed outside of Texas, captures the bravado and stubborn nature that defines part of Texas culture to this day. In Red River, John Wayne, perhaps the most iconic representative of this on-screen bravado, plays a cattleman and rancher who knocks heads with anyone who gets between him and his economic dreams.

This evening's program is shown in conjunction with our Spirit Theater Gallery Texas Film Poster exhibition, and includes a film screening and Q&A with screenwriter and director, Alex R. Johnson and Professor in the Radio-Television-Film Department at the University of Texas at Austin, Dr. Tom Schatz. Come early at 6pm for a welcome reception with drink samples provided by Austin Cocktails.

A cinematic exploration of the Texas narrative, the Museum's Texas Focus Film Series highlights stories by, for, and about Texans. This season's selections center around classic ideas of Texas and Texans as viewed on screen.

Promotional support for Texas Focus Film Series provided by Texas Film Commission.
