Brown Bag Lecture: Lone Star Cinema - The Film Industry in Texas with John Slater

The Dallas Historical Society's September 10 Brown Bag Lecture is titled Lone Star Cinema - The Film Industry in Texas with John Slater. This free program takes place at noon in the Hall of State.

John Slate, Dallas city archivist and published scholar of Texas film history, will take you on a trip around the state and its many connections to Hollywood. Slate’s illustrated talk will include stories of both well-known and forgotten actors from Texas, the history and development of the Texas film industry, and fascinating episodes from Texas film folklore.

Learn more about Lone Star Cinema just a couple of weeks before the State Fair of Texas and Dallas Historical Society's exhibit "Texas Cinema" opens. The exhibit “Texas Cinema” focuses on the history and impact of film performers and creators from the Lone Star State as well as the depiction of Texas through film. FREE and open to the public. Individual reservations are not necessary, but requested, and appreciated for large groups planning to attend.

Tables will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Attendees are welcome to bring their own “brown bag” lunch to enjoy during the presentation. Park in the lot to the north of building at Washington and Keating.
