For the fourth year, we're celebrating the documentary legacy of the late great Les Blank (on his 82nd birthday) at the Hollywood Theatre with the program RARE MUSIC SELECTIONS. We will be screening a trilogy of his rarely seen music documentaries - featuring windows into Tex-Mex, American pop and Cajun culture.
