Homegrown Austin production company Beef & Pie premiered Life Is Marbleous! tonight at Red’s Scoot Inn and Bier Garden. The Marble Lady, Cathy Runyan-Svacina, was on hand to lend pointers as snap-buttoned patrons marbled their way through a hard-fought tournament. Haven’t heard of shooting marbles? Okay, neither had I. It’s of an era gone by. And that’s what makes this documentary so unique. Beef & Pie opens our eyes to a simpler world where marbles are collected, bought, sold, shot and all around adored.
Music by honky tonk purist Dale Watson.
