Screening benefits Resource Center
A screening of the new film Dallas Buyers Club on Nov. 5 benefits Resource Center. Researchers for the film used the Resource Center archives at University of North Texas.
The story is based on the true story of how the gay community in Dallas smuggled unapproved drugs into the country and distributed them to people living with AIDS in the late 1980s and early ’90s. Matthew McConaughey stars as the straight man who began the Dallas Buyers Club.
Tickets for the screening are available online at RCDallas.org.

The sale takes place Oct. 26 from 8–11 a.m. Old Bedford School, 2400 School Lane, Bedford.
