Lovely Soiree at the Bottle Rocket Motel 2014
Call 254-582-3493 To Book Your Room For July 26th 2014
In 1996, Wes Anderson made his directorial debut with the feature film Bottle Rocket. A large majority of the movie took place at the Windmill Inn in Hillsboro, Texas.
Due to the economic downturn the motel's business suffered, thus the Save The Bottle Rocket Motel event was conceived and became reality in July of 2011.
After what could only be described as a success (full success) there was no denying that this magical evening had to be repeated and it has been with an annual affair, now dubbed The Lovely Soiree.
So pull on your yellow jumpsuit, pop the clutch on your moped or grab the VW Bus keys from Apple Jack, and head to Hillsboro, Texas to be a part of the best night of film fandom (in a city north of Waco and south of Dallas).
As always; costumed guests are welcomed and encouraged!
