FREE Movie at the Capitol: Duncan Hines Days meets Unseen BG

Dolly Parton's The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas is a perfect twist on the legendary Pauline Tabor Unseen BG story, and Dolly Parton and Duncan Hines have their own southern baking mix line. Catch Burt Reynolds and Dolly Parton in this iconic 1980s musical comedy. When Texas authorities attempt to close down the Chicken Ranch, a popular Texas brothel, the local madam fights to save her business—singing and dancing all the way. Unseen BG will be selling special edition Pauline’s autobiography books from Capitol Bookstore during this night. Thanks to Warren County Public Library and the Capitol. Rated: R (1982) https://capitolbg.org/get-tickets/
