You might know Kirby Warnock as Hillcrest’s former PTA president — and the first person with a Y chromosome to ever hold the job. Warnock is a filmmaker as well, and his 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 Preston Hollow 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.
