RONDO AND BOB Horror Documentary Screening

Tickets: $16.50 USD PURCHASE
Thu, May 26, 2022 @ 7:30pm
Galaxy Highland Theater
6700 Middle Fiskville Rd, Austin 78752

Austin's Robert A. Burns was the genius behind the look of classic horror films including The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Re-Animator and The Howling. He was deeply obsessed with cult actor Rondo Hatton aka The Creeper. Burns was average looking but brimming with odd creativity. Hatton, who suffered from acromegaly, had a strangely unique appearance, but was a regular guy. Their stories weave together in Rondo and Bob to create a very human story of the search for love.

Written & Directed by Joe O'Connell.

After the movie, we'll head over to the Long Play Lounge a few blocks away at 704 West Saint Johns Austin, TX 78752.
