7Apr2018 "Made in S.A." Film Series - "Viva Max" 4/7/2018 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM Join Texas Public Radio, the San Antonio Film Commission (a division of the City of San Antonio’s Department of Arts & Culture), and Slab Cinema for a “Made in S.A.” film series. This FREE series celebrates San Antonio’s Tricentennial year by screening films that were made in San Antonio at (or very close to!) the location where they were filmed. VIVA MAX stars Peter Ustinov as Brigadier General Maximilian Rodrigues de Santos, who leads his troops from Mexico on a mission to re-occupy the Alamo. The film is full of late 1960s farce, and co-stars John Astin, Jonathan Winters, Harry Morgan, and Kenneth Mars. When filming on location in downtown San Antonio, it was protested by the Daughters of the Republic of Texas. Our special guest at the screening will be writer and filmmaker Jim Mendiola. One of his ongoing projects is a documentary about the making of "Viva Max."
