Wes Anderson's debut feature has long held a special place in our hearts. There are so many reasons to love BOTTLE ROCKET, but mostly we love this heist comedy about a trio of young, shiftless Texans in existential crisis trying in vain to become hardened criminals because it's damn funny. So, when we heard that the Days Inn on I-35 in Hillsboro, Texas -- a major location in the movie -- was in danger of shuttering forever we knew we had to step up and join our friends from Reservoir Geeks in their efforts to save the iconic indie film location.
Due to the economic downturn the motel's business suffered, thus the Save The Bottle Rocket Motel event was born and became reality in July of 2011. An estimate 250 fans took part in the festivities which included a showing of the film, attendance by none other than potential getaway driver himself, Robert Musgrave, and the sale of a limited edition Mondo poster.
On July 21, 2012 the magic will happen again as the 2nd Annual Lovely Soiree to ensure that the Bottle Rocket Motel will be there for years to come. If you love BOTTLE ROCKET, Wes Anderson, or just film in general join us by calling 254-582-3493 and book yourself a room for a magical night and see the hilarious comedy where it was filmed.
