Movies on the Lawn: Giant


What’s Happening?

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. Our final movie this season is Giant and is generously hosted by Thomas J. Henry Law.

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. Bring a blanket or chair to enjoy the movie. We are so excited about this series that it has rubbed off on local community partners who are ensuring these nights will be the bees’ knees. Tickets include not only access to the movie, but also delicious cocktails from Still Austin or beer from Thirsty Planet, and a bag of Austin Gourmet Popcorn. NSCDA-TX Austin will provide free Museum passes for a future visit!
