Considered “the meanest bartender in Austin”, Sarah Ransom (along with her son, Jay “Buddy” Reynolds) helm one of the oldest dive bars in Austin, Texas, The Dry Creek Cafe and Boat Dock, which stayed in business for nearly 70 years.
PennyRock Productions LLC is proud to announce that their short documentary, SUNSET AT DRY CREEK, has been completed and will premiere at BILLY’S ON BURNET (2105 Hancock Dr) on Thursday, February 10th at approximately 7pm.
SUNSET AT DRY CREEK is a 30 minute short documentary about the beloved dive bar that closed permanently on October 31st, 2021. In the documentary, current owner Jay “Buddy” Reynolds, regulars and staff recall the nearly 70 year history and their favorite memories about the meager watering hole that was located in affluent West Austin. They also discuss the bar’s original owner, the sharp-tongued Sarah Ransom and her infamous cantankerous character.
SUNSET AT DRY CREEK is produced and directed by J. Budro Partida, an award-winning filmmaker from Austin. Partida is also the owner and founder of PennyRock Productions LLC. Pat Peyton serves as Executive Producer of the film, who was also a longtime patron of Dry Creek Cafe & Boat Dock.
“I wanted to make this documentary as a tribute to Sarah, “Buddy”, and to the Dry Creek Cafe & Boat Dock. There is a story here and it needed to be told and shared. Hopefully, it will evoke particularly deep memories that many have experienced for almost 70 years at Dry Creek, and the film will serve as a time capsule.” says Executive Producer, Pat Peyton.
“When I was approached about this project, I knew very little about the actual location and its history,” says director, Budro Partida. “However, when we began shooting and I started to learn about the building, the patrons, and the Dry Creek family, I knew this was going to be an emotional story to put together.”
Once the film premieres at Billy’s on Burnet on Thursday, February 10th, it will be made available online on the PennyRock Productions Youtube page (www.youtube.com/c/ pennyrockproductions) as well as the company’s website (www.pennyrockproductions.com). The film will also be submitted into the 2022 film festival circuit for award consideration.
