Fistful of Dollars
The Rolling Roadshow Tour: the Leone Edition
Every summer, the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema takes to the road, departing from Austin, Texas on a whirlwind tour and hosting free 35mm screenings of famous movies in famous places. Known as The Rolling Roadshow Tour, it has been to the Field of Dreams in Iowa to show Field of Dreams with Kevin Costner live in person, Devil's Tower in Wyoming for a screening of Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind and Alcatraz Island for a screening of Escape From Alcatraz. In 2008, The Rolling Roadshow Tour is paying tribute to one of the most influential film series of the modern age, Sergio Leone's "dollars" trilogy, A Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More and The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.
