Movies on the Lawn: Giant
The Neill-Cochran House Museum is excited to announce our first ever Movies on the Lawn Summer Series! This summer we will be highlighting our favorite movies all about the wondrous state of Texas. Hosted by Thomas J. Henry Law, our final movie this season is Giant!
Giant, released in 1956, tracks the lives of the family members of a ranching empire in Texas. Based on the novel by Edna Ferber, Giant follows “Bick” Benedict (played by Rock Hudson), a Texas cattle baron. After he marries the socialite Leslie (Elizabeth Taylor), tensions mount with the young ranch hand Jett (Dean), who is envious of both Benedict’s money and his beautiful wife.
These movies will take place on our front lawn, so bring a blanket or chair. Still Austin will be on hand slinging their delicious cocktails and serving beer provided by Thirsty Planet. Austin Gourmet Popcorn will also provide all guests with a bag of their delicious popcorn. The NSCDA-TX of Austin will provide free museum passes for a future visit!
