Springtime in Austin at Laguna Gloria is as good as it gets anywhere on Earth,  and we're going to bring in even more to ensure this will actually be THE BEST place to be! Enjoy delicious Southern fare prepared by Alamo executive chef John Bullington, ice-cold beer, live letterpress demonstrations and even walk away with your very own Hatch Show Print poster!

Hatch Show Print, founded in 1879, is still a working letterpress and design shop located in Nashville, Tennessee, creating event and concert posters using the same letterpress methods since their founding. The technology has never changed, only the faces of their customers: from Elvis Presley to Elvis Costello, Buddy Guy to Bruce Springsteen, Etta James to Emmylou Harris. To match the grandeur of this long-standing Nashville institution, we've chosen the grandeur of Robert Altman's 1975 smash hit NASHVILLE as the main event. Considered by many to be Altman's finest film, this highly-acclaimed film takes an intimate snapshot of the people involved in the country music and gospel music businesses in Nashville, Tennessee.

For more information about the exhibit, please visit www.amoa.org.

Ticket's are $10 for members of AMOA and $15 for general public and 100% worth it.  Don't miss.

Please note: Doors open at 7:00p. Food, drink and Printing Press will begin after 7:00p. Screening starts after dusk.
