We had special permission to have a PRIVATE showing of "Bill Tighman and the Outlaws!!" a new western starring none other than Darby Hinton!

The movie was shown on June 5, 2019, Wednesday evening @ 8:30 pm. There was a $5 charge to see the movie as a fee to the producers for the rights to show it. (check out the people waiting in line!)

Darby Hinton was there to watch the movie with all of as too! He and John Buttram, who also has a role in the movie, stayed to answer questions after the movie. 

A special treat for movie goers was the attendance of Dan Searles, Edna Searles and Eliza Kelley.  Dan Searles is an actor and writer, known for "Bill Tilghman and the Outlaws" (2019), "Day of the Gun: The Series" (2018) and "Tales of the Wild West" (2017).  Edna Searles is his mother who also appeared in the movie as 'Mom  Tilghman' and wrote some of the songs performed in the movie.  Eliza Kelley played 'Alice' the love interest to Cole Younger (Darby Hinton).
