‘Return to Giant’ Screens at 7 p.m. Thursday

Park Cities rotarian Kirby Warnock’s documentary about Marfa and a troupe of Hollywood visitors has been lauded by the New York Times, earned its share of awards, and made at least one reporter laugh at loud (OK, and tear up at one point, too).

You can’t buy the full version of Return to Giant anywhere, but Warnock will screen it for the first time in years on Thursday at a special benefit for the Texas Theatre. We said as much in Friday’s issue of Park Cities People, with one g-i-a-n-t blunder: the wrong show time was noted in an info box. Argh! Sorry, Kirby.

The real deal:

What: Screening of Return to Giant, followed by a Q-&-A with filmmaker Kirby Warnock

When: 7 p.m. Thursday

Where: Texas Theatre, 231 W. Jefferson Blvd.

Cost: $5

    Wish I could be there! Saw “Giant” at the old Northpark when it was re-released a few years ago and it was amazing (film and theater)!

    What an enjoyable event! The Marfa residents were the stars and highlights of the documentary…(SO refreshing and humble compared to our culture of self absorbed Real Housewives etc) It is also such a travesty that the Texas Theatre has not been desinated as a landmark-
