Benefiting AIDS Interfaith Network
"We believe that anything is possible as long as people are willing to put themselves out there and do the work. AIN impresses us as an organization that doesn't shy away from a challenge. We are proud that the good people there decided to join us on this leg of our trip. We hope that this benefit is the first of many for AIN and Alonestar Films," said RAINBOWS END producer, Andy Cope.
"AIN is so grateful to be the beneficiary of the RAINBOWS END screenings. We're all on our own journey towards a dream. From making it big in Hollywood, to finding a cure for HIV, success requires the support of those around us. RAINBOWS END will be a theatrical treat at the historic Texas Theatre. AIN is thrilled to take part," said Travis Gasper, Development Services for the AIDS Interfaith Network.
RAINBOWS END SYNOPSIS
An invitation to record with The Legendary Stardust Cowboy prompts Country Willie Edwards and his band “The Cosmic Debris” to launch their first West Coast tour. Having never broken the gravitational pull of Deep East Texas, the band invites three unique individuals who have dreams of striking it rich in California to make the trip.
Straight out of 1978, opening act, Peter Guzzino hopes that his one-man show resonates with modern audiences. Cockfighter Brian “Birdman” Birdwell offers to drive the band's fragile bus, Green Hell, in exchange for a chance at landing roles for his prize roosters in a big time Hollywood feature. Parapsychologist, experienced hitchhiker, and global twirler Audrey Dean Leighton guides the expedition as far as Los Angeles. Audrey Dean plans to learn the Internet and strike gold with a cyber psychic readings storefront.
RAINBOWS END chronicles six men, two roosters, and one bus on a perilous journey to the other side of a dream.

The Texas Theatre (located on 231 W. Jefferson Blvd in Oak Cliff) is a historic movie theater that also hosts concerts, events, theatrical productions, “Rough Cut Lab” screenings for filmmakers, and a variety of intensive workshops for acting, screenwriting and cinematography. When first opened in 1931 as part of a chain of theaters owned by Howard Hughes, the Texas Theatre was the largest suburban movie theater in Dallas.
