Honky Tonk Heaven - The Legend Of The Broken Spoke is an official documentary at SXSW Film Festival 2016 that will be screened at Marchesa Hall on Tuesday, March 15 at 1:45 pm and Zacharay Scott Theater on March 17 at 4:45 pm.
George Strait, Willie Nelson, Ernest Tubb, Bob Wills, George Jones and Roy Acuff have all been regulars on stage at the world famous honky tonk, The Broken Spoke. With fifty years under its belt buckle “the last of the true Texas dance halls” has endured rapid urban growth and skyrocketing rents due to the passion and hard work of its charismatic, tenacious owners. More than a history of who played and when at this landmark venue, the film reveals a universal story about what it takes to maintain a family business in our increasingly corporate-driven society. Interviews include Willie Nelson, Jerry Jeff Walker, Dale Watson, James Hand, Jesse Dayton, the Waco Brothers, Alvin Crow and Pauline Reese. http://www.brokenspokefilm.com
