Don't miss this: 'Bernie' onscreen at Liberty, key players in attendance | Arts & Culture
From Liberty Hall:
This Thursday, May 23 we will show the Richard Linklater directed film, “Bernie” starring Jack Black, Shirley MacLaine and Matthew McConaughey. The movie is based on a true story that occurred in our own Carthage, Texas. Local mortician, Bernie Tiede (Black), strikes up a friendship with a wealthy widow (MacLaine).
The twist comes when Bernie kills her and then goes to great lengths to create the illusion that she's still alive. The film has cameos by many people who experienced the events first hand. We will have special guests speak before the show, Danny Buck Davidson the Panola County District Attorney, played in the film by McConaughey and Ms. Kay Baby Epperson who had several cameos in the film.
Doors open at 6:15 p.m. and the movies start at 7 p.m. Tickets are available online or at the door for $5. Tickets can be purchased in advance at www.libertytyler.com . We now accept MasterCard and Visa at Liberty Hall.
