A nationwide release date has not yet been set.

Following the screening, director Rob Reiner, actor Woody Harrelson, and producer Matthew George will join LBJ Library Director Mark Updegrove on stage for a conversation. The film is 98 minutes and will be shown in its entirety before the conversation on-stage.
