"Capone's Whiskey: The Story of Templeton Rye" - Movie Premiere
This excellent documentary is premiering at Fleur Cinemas at 7pm, Sunday December 4th. It'll be worth your time if you like history, Iowa, gangsters, libations, or a mixture of all of those things. Advance tickets can be bought online or, if you're willing to risk it, they'll be $10 the night of the show. More info can be found on the Facebook page.
"It's about the history of the whiskey," says Director Kristian Day. "We have spent almost an entire year compiling research and interview subjects from all over the state. Historians from Dubuque to Sioux City who are experts in both the Prohibition era and Al Capone's presence in Iowa have been involved in the production process since the beginning. I am very excited to finally share the rich history of Templeton Rye with the rest of the world."
See, it sounds awesome. And honestly, how often do you get to go to a movie premiere in Des Moines?
