Sept. 19 – Rare screening
A newly edited version of the Vaughan brothers documentary, “From Nowhere,” hits the Texas Theatre at 7:30 p.m. Former Oak Cliff resident and independent filmmaker Kirby Warnock screened an earlier version of the film in August 2018 and spent the past year editing it down by 15 minutes. Warnock says he has no plans to show the film again, “until we get nationwide distribution,” so this is your last chance to see it for a while. This event coincides with North Texas Giving Day, and the theater will be accepting donations for the Stevie Ray Vaughan scholarship fund at Greiner. $12
Where: Texas Theatre, 231 W. Jefferson Blvd.
