Texas Focus – Computer Chess

March 8 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm - $3 – $39

Written and directed by Austin-based filmmaker Andrew Bujalski, Computer Chess is a nerd-drenched spoof about chess software programmers who compete to create the most advanced chess program. Created in 2013, the film uses a black and white, retro production design backdrop.

A cinematic exploration of the Texas narrative, the Museum’s Texas Focus Film Series highlights stories by, for, and about Texans. This evening’s program is shown in conjunction with our special exhibition, Pong to Pokémon: The Evolution of Electronic Gamingand includes a film screening and Q&A with filmmaker Andrew Bujalski and actor Wiley Wiggins. Come early at 6pm for a welcome reception with cash bar

Please note: Entrance for this screening will be at the IMAX lobby doors.

Your ticket purchase supports the Bullock Museum’s exhibitions and educational programming.
