LLANO FILM SOCIETY
The Llano Film Society was formed in 2011 with the objective of showing interesting, non-mainstream movies at the Lantex Theater with a particular focus on movies that are made in Texas or by Texas producers/directors. The film society has been particularly successful in bringing the producers/directors of Texas made movies to the Lantex to introduce their movies and to talk about them afterwards.
The film society has also brought to the theater movies made in Iceland, Ireland, China, Germany and France.
There is no charge for membership of the film society. We charge only for attending film society movies at the Lantex. This is necessary in order to cover the necessary cost of a license to show the movie. We usually aim to have a film society movie each month on the Thursday evening before the Llano Country Opry. The movie will usually begin at 6:30 pm but doors open at 6:00 pm so members can get together for a social gathering. Bring snacks and drinks to share! Notifications of events are sent out by email. In order to join the film society, simply send your email address to: email@example.com.
The Other Fellow
The year 1952, Jamaica. When author Ian Fleming needs a name for his suave, sophisticated secret agent, he steals one from an unaware birdwatcher and creates a pop-culture phenomenon about the ultimate fictional alpha male. The year, 2022. It is the year of 007's sixtieth anniversary onscreen and Australian filmmaker Matthew Bauer is on a global mission to discover the lasting, contrasting and very personal impacts of sharing such an identity with James Bond. From a Swedish 007 super-fan with a WW2 past, a 97 year old Llano, Texas rancher, an African American Bond accused of murder, and two resilient women caught up in it all, Bauer's cinematic mission is an audacious, poignant, and insightful examination of masculinity, gender, and race in the very real shadows of a movie icon.
