The Big Screen: Dallas’ Distribution Past

by Stephen Becker 2 Sep 2015 2:00 PM

BIG SCREEN LOGO FOR POST508 Park Street in downtown Dallas is best known as the building where Robert Johnson, Gene Autry and other legends recorded. And that important piece of music history can overshadow the significant role the building played in movie history. This week, we talk about an era when some of Hollywood’s biggest films were distributed through Dallas.

The 508 Park Movie Night series begins Sunday and runs through Oct. 4. It’s free, but be sure to RSVP.
