FREELOAD
DIRECTOR: DANIEL T. SKAGGS / BILLINGS, MT
(DOC) “Hobos to me, represent an American pastime—a story told through the lyrics of Woody Guthrie and writers from the dust Bowl era. Historically, men of The Great Depression rode trains out of necessity. I, however, had been riding freight trains for nearly a decade seeking adventure. In the summer of 2011, I hopped a freight out of Missoula, Montana. Armed with camera equipment, a pack, and a vision, I crisscrossed the nation’s railroads, encountering the characters of this documentary. This movie is about Blackbird, a lost teenager searching for the answers to life; Ponyboy and Rachel, young lovers who attempt to settle down in Texas but the freedom of the road lures them back; brothers Skrappe and Christmas—separated most of their lives—try to rekindle their distant brother- hood; and dice who will risk everything to ride the rails.”—Daniel Skaggs. (66 mins.)

THE 10-MINUTE RULE
Seats for advance ticket and pass holders are held until 10 minutes before showtime, when any unfilled seats are released to the public. Thus, advance tickets or passes ensure that you will not have to wait in the ticket purchase line but do not guarantee a seat in the case of arrival after the 10-minute window has begun. Your early arrival also helps get screenings started promptly. We appreciate your understanding. Advance ticket holders who arrive within the 10-minute window but are not seated may exchange their tickets for another screening at the Ticket Outlet or obtain a cash refund at the theater. There are no refunds or exchanges for late arrivals or for missed screenings.
