Help Save the Bottle Rocket Motel

Join us for a Rolling Roadshow screening of the modern classic BOTTLE ROCKET at the actual motel featured in the film... and help save this landmark of indie cinema!

Help Save the Bottle Rocket Motel

"I'm a risk taker! I'm growin' an entire crop of marijuana plants in my parents back yard!"

Wes Anderson's debut feature has long held a special place in our hearts. There are so many reasons to love BOTTLE ROCKET, but mostly we love this heist comedy about  a trio of young, shiftless Texans in existential crisis trying in vain to become hardened criminals because it's damn funny. So, when we heard that the Days Inn on I-35 in Hillsboro, Texas -- a major location in the movie -- was in danger of shuttering forever we knew we had to step up and join our friends from Reservoir Geeks in their efforts to save the iconic indie film location.

So, join us on July 9 for a very special Rolling Roadshow presentation of BOTTLE ROCKET on the grounds of the motel where Anthony, Dignan, and Bob hide out in the movie! Plus, "Bob" himself, Mr. Robert Musgrave, will join us in person for the show! And, we'll have special limited edition posters commemorating the event from Mondo available for sale (with a portion of the proceeds going to support this worthy cause, of course).

Finally, you can help support the cause by getting your own room at the Motel! (Plus, you'll save yourself a long bleary-eyed drive home) Get the special details about booking rooms here.

Tickets for this event are just $10 and they're on sale NOW!! Buy Tickets
