“Musically mischievous, ridiculously fun” – Kevin Curtin, Austin Chronicle 

Don’t miss this special screening of William S. Hart’s classic 1916 silent western film The Return of Draw Egan, featuring the music of Ennio Morricone performed live by Justin Sherburn of Montopolis. Comedian Mac Blake has rewritten the movie in the irreverent and absurdist style typical of his work with Alamo Drafthouse’s Master Pancake Theater.  It’s a guaranteed hilarious and rowdy good time! 

Outlaw leader “Draw” Egan (William S. Hart), believed dead, turns up in the town of Yellow Dog. The townsfolk believe him to be William Blake, a strong and law-abiding man. They appoint him sheriff to rid the town of the hoodlums who have nearly taken over. He does so with dispatch, becoming a genuinely lawful and respected member of the town’s society. But then Arizona Joe, one of Egan’s old gang, shows up in Yellow Dog, threatening to expose Egan if he doesn’t help his old comrade take over the town…… (Dir. by William S. Hart, 1916, USA, silent, 70 mins., Not Rated)

Montopolis is an indie chamber music group from Austin, Texas that performs the works of composer Justin Sherburn.  Their genre-busting music uses inventive instrumentation to create “stunning and transcendent” (Austin Chronicle) concerts.  Their programs are audience-engaging, multi-media events that combine live music with film and interactive storytelling. The Montopolis musicians include members of the Austin Symphony, Okkervil River, Tosca String Quartet, and the Polyphonic Spree. Montopolis is a member of the Texas Commission on the Arts touring roster.
