After 170 years, the proud team at Brunswick Billiards decided to have its story told through a collection of short films. Legendary host Bill Kurtis served as the host and was joined by world-renowned billiards champion Ewa Mataya Laurance, aka “The Striking Viking”.
The first film, “A Family Business”, focused on how the company’s founder, John Moses Brunswick immigrated to America and found his calling after seeing a luxury billiards table. The film also explains how Brunswick grew exponentially, making its mark across America and internationally.
