Spiral Diner’s executive chef makes delicious vegan food, and he makes movies, too. James M. Johnston‘s short film, "Receive Bacon" will screen at the Lakewood Theater Saturday at 8 p.m. Johnston, who lives in Oak Cliff, shot the film at the Chat Room Pub in Fort Worth.
The main feature is "Cook County," a full-length feature from Houston-based director David Pomes. It’s about a small-town Texas family with a crystal meth problem, and it’s gotten good reviews and awards from film festivals, including an audience award at the SXSW Film Festival in March.
There will be a Q&A session after the shows with the directors and actor Anson Mount of "Cook County." Admission is $9.
