Command and Control

Texas Spirit Theater

January 12, 2017 7:00pm - 9:00pm

A chilling nightmare plays out at a Titan II missile complex in Arkansas in September, 1980. A worker accidentally drops a socket, puncturing the fuel tank of an intercontinental ballistic missile carrying the most powerful nuclear warhead in our arsenal, an incident which ignites a series of feverish efforts to avoid a deadly disaster.

Richard Linklater and Eric Schlosser join us to present the new documentary film based on Schlosser's book of the same name.
