Psst — if your local movie trivia skills are lacking, we have you covered with our local film guide. Here’s an overview of what you’ll see on the tour.

Hookers Grill, 213 W. Exchange Ave. | Known as the Gambling Den in “1883” and is the only building to preserve its facade constructed by the show’s production team.

White Elephant Saloon, 106 E. Exchange Ave. | Doubled as Pearl’s Dance Hall in the series “1883,” featuring Tim McGraw & Billy Bob Thornton. It was also used as the CD Bar in the series “Walker, Texas Ranger” starring Chuck Norris.

The Stockyards Hotel, 109 E. Exchange Ave. | Infamous bank-robbing duo Bonnie and Clyde used Room 305 as a hideout in 1933 and left a gun behind.

Cowtown Coliseum, 121 E. Exchange Ave. | George Strait filmed the final rodeo scene in the 1992 movie “Pure Country.” The Coliseum is also where Dennis Quaid starred in the amateur boxing match scene in 1983’s “Tough Enough.”
