B Movies and Bad History: Secret Societies

Online Program

March 23, 2022 7:00pm - 8:00pm

Discover cinematic portrayals and explore their evolution.

Event Details

In conjunction with the exhibition Mystery and Benevolence join us for an exploration of secret societies and WWII conspiracy theories on screen. From the frightening to the funny, the mysterious symbols and secret meetings of fraternal groups like the Masons are a familiar subject in film. See the best and worst examples through select clips from movies and TV shows and learn about the meaning behind the symbols and secrecy along the way.

At B-Movies and Bad History, join experts to watch clips from some of the best (and worst) Texas-centric movies and television shows. Hear behind-the-scenes stories and learn the facts and fiction portrayed on-screen.

Program is FREE to the public.
