"IT LEFT ME SPEECHLESS." -Martin Scorsese

"THE BEST AND MOST TERRIFYING FILM ABOUT AUSTRALIA IN EXISTENCE." -Nick Cave

Awe-inspiring, brutal and stunning, Wake in Fright is the story of John Grant (Gary Bond), a bonded teacher who arrives in the rough Australian outback mining town of Bundanyabba, planning to stay overnight before catching the plane to Sydney. But, as his one night stretches to five, he plunges headlong toward his own destruction. When the alcohol-induced mist lifts, the educated John Grant is no more. Instead there is a self-loathing man in a desolate wasteland, dirty, red-eyed, sitting against a tree and looking at a rifle with one bullet left.

Co-presented by Oskar Blues Brewary. We'll have specials on Mama's Little Yellow Pils throughout the day and a representative from Oskar Blues will be on hand for the 7:30 PM show to chat with beer fans.

Alamo Vintage Park officially opens on 2/14.  This show is part of our Vintage Park opening training exercises. Tickets are only $3!
