Two years after the private, rough cut screening of what was then called The Starck Project, which played to a packed theater at the Angelika during DIFF 2012, director Michael Cain is ready to unveil his finished product. The Starck Club debuts this Saturday at Texas Theatre, and although that particular screening is sold out, people can still purchase tickets for Sunday's showing at the Angelika. Those not familiar with Dallas' iconic nightclub can read all about it in our 2012 music feature, Starck Contrast, which touches on the momentous but short life of the club and the race to preserve it's history. We've also dug deep into our archives, and found the 1986 feature story surrounding the club's opening.
