Alamo Drafthouse’s Rolling Roadshow and Luck Productions joined forces with an unforgettable kickoff event: a starlit screening of the “Red Headed Stranger” held on the original film set, Willie Nelson’s Luck, TX ranch. Following the film, Willie Nelson spoke to journalist and broadcaster Andy Langer about the history of the film, his experience on set, and the town of Luck, TX. Guests were also treated to the first-ever digital presentation of the recently resurfaced classic western, showcased on Rolling Roadshow’s projector screen situated in the middle of the Luck, TX property. Prior to the screening, Austin Food & Wine Alliance hosted an intimate, 50-person dinner prepared by award-winning chef Jesse Griffiths of Austin’s celebrated Dai Due restaurant.
