Texas Monthly recently brought together an expert panel with the aim of determining the ten best Texas movies of all time. This committee included “a critic, an academic, two screenwriters, and a theater owner/festival director” (Texas Monthly). And now, with the list completed, we can all watch these movies on a touring festival in the actual towns where they were filmed or in towns that have thematic relevance – for FREE! See the Full Schedule below.
In partnership with Alamo Drafthouse Cinema (love them!), the Texas Monthly Rolling Roadshow will tour across Texas from June 3rd to July 1st. Don’t miss this free opportunity to celebrate Texas and great movies! (Two of my favorite things, and most likely yours as well) Catch the screening in your hometown, or gather a group of friends to take in the majesty of Texas on a summer road-trip. Absence certainly has made my heart grow fonder, but one thing that I know for sure is that Texas deserves our recognition as a place unlike any other – as a place with unrivaled heart and spirit.
“Texas is a state of mind. Texas is an obsession. Above all, Texas is a nation in every sense of the word. And there's an opening convey of generalities. A Texan outside of Texas is a foreigner.”
