From Bubba Ho-Tep to Hap and Leonard  and for all of the fans that have followed along throughout Joe R Lansdale's storied career,  All Hail The Popcorn King the  documentary  is something of a monument.  

This is a film that we can all get excited about!

Joe himself has collaborated with our team on this documentary, and he has generously granted us access to invaluable interviews and materials from his private collection.

We can't wait to give The Popcorn King a grand salute with this premiere, but to do that, we need your help.

Our goal through this campaign is to raise $2,000, which will cover the costs of  booking Austin's Alamo Draft House Cinema for a once-in-a-lifetime premiere screening of the documentary and a post film celebration with Joe's friends and family.

To reward our contributors you will receive:

*Exclusive access to tickets before the general public.

* Live streaming of the event

*Special access to extras from the the interviews and footage not used in the film.

*Donors who contribute $50 will receive a digital copy of the film.

*Donors who contribute $100 or more will receive a limited edition copy of the DVD.

The screening and celebration will be held at the Alamo Draft House, Slaughter Lane, Austin August 18th 2019 1-4 PM. Joe and his family will be there to chat with guests.
More information on the donor pre-sale and merchandise packages to be announced  on 5/15/19.

Just interviewed Joe's niece, former Homicide Detective #PamelaLansdale. Every Lansdale I have spoke with has been lovely, funny and a great storyteller. A documentarian couldn't ask for a better group of people to talk with. #AllHailthePopcornKing (Photo of Pamela & Kasey Lansdale courtesy of Joe)
