Benefit Screening: Honky Tonk Heaven

Ticket proceeds from these screenings will be donated to Hurriance Harvey relief efforts.

George Strait, Willie Nelson, Ernest Tubb, Bob Wills, George Jones and Roy Acuff have all been regulars on stage at the world famous honky tonk, Broken Spoke. With fifty years under its belt buckle “the last of the true Texas dance halls” has endured rapid urban growth and skyrocketing rents due to the passion and hard work of its charismatic, tenacious owners. More than a history of who played and when at this landmark venue, this documentary reveals a universal story about what it takes to maintain a family business in our increasingly corporate-driven society. Interviews include Willie Nelson, Jerry Jeff Walker, Dale Watson, James Hand, Jesse Dayton, the Waco Brothers and Alvin Crow.

Directors Brenda Greene Mitchell and Sam Wainwright Douglas, Producer Michelle Faires and Broken Spoke owner James White will be on hand for a Q&A after the film.
