On Saturday, May 5th, the Paris Downtown Association, partnering with Paris Community Theatre, will preview Bernie. The movie will start at 7:00pm and the doors open at 6:30pm.
In its first night out, on three screens in New York, Los Angeles, and Austin, the film proved to be the best indie film preview of 2012 so far and deemed by some critics as the best film of the year.
Directed by Texas movie legend, Richard Linklater (Dazed and Confused, School of Rock, Bad News Bears), the movie is set in the small east Texas town of Carthage. It’s a dark comedy, with a bit of drama, starring Jack Black, Matthew McConaughey, and Shirley MacLainem, that is so unbelievable that it must be true — it is in fact based on an article written in the Texas Monthly by Skip Hollandsworth about a real story and murder case in Carthage.
Along with that all star cast, one of the producers on the film is Judd Payne, Paris native, PISD graduate, and head of production of Wind Dancer Films in Los Angeles, CA.
He will speak at the event about Bernie and life of making Hollywood movies. He will also be present at the wine and cheese reception that will be held at the Plaza Art Gallery directly after the movie.
