In this rebroadcast from Jan. 4, 2013, Louie talks with author Ken Hudnall.  Hudnall talks about the Chinese immigrant workers who came to El Paso in the 1880s to work on the railroad system.  Hundreds of Chinese immigrants remained in El Paso, creating El Paso's Chinatown.  After a Chinese exclusion law was passed by Congress in 1882, many El Pasoans began to illegally smuggle Chinese into the city.  Legends persist of a tunnel system hundreds of miles long and an underground city below Downtown El Paso which hid & protected many of these Chinese illegal immigrants.  Hudnall talks about his quest to map this complex series of tunnels and his search for the underground city.  http://kenhudnall.com  Aired Nov. 29, 2013.

   Charles talks with Jeffrey Mills, founder & director of the nonprofit Documentary Alliance, which is producing the film "Before the Curtain Rises," which documents the rise & fall of the Interstate Theatre chain in Texas.  El Paso's Plaza and Palace (Alambra) Theatres were part of the chain, and the restoration of the Plaza Theatre plays a central role in the film.  Jeffrey talks about why the movie theatre palaces were just as important to the movie-going experience as the movies themselves.  

An Indiegogo crowd sourcing campaign is currently underway to finish production on the film.  You can contribute at http://www.interstatetheatres.com/.
