25 Years Ago: Linklater & Tarantino Present FROM DUSK TILL DAWN World Premiere
It has been twenty-five years since Robert Rodriguez’s FROM DUSK TILL DAWN hit American movie screens. We’re guessing you’ve seen it by now. It’s the one that made George Clooney and Salma Hayek movie stars and it was among the most exciting moviegoing experiences of the decade. You can imagine how thrilling it must have been to see on opening night as a rabid crowd jammed the Paramount Theater for the Austin Film Society world premiere of the film.
Here from the vaults is a shaky-cam document of the opening night remarks by Louis Black, Richard Linklater and Quentin Tarantino. Robert Rodriguez was in California working on promotion for the film. Fortunately, Tarantino, never known as a low-energy speaker, kicks it off right. Forgive the low video quality but we think you’ll agree that this moment of Austin film history is worth seeing.
