4th Tuesday Classic Cinema: Giant
8/22/2017, starts 6:00 PM

The 1956 western epic, “Giant,” starring Elizabeth Taylor, Rock Hudson and James Dean, screens at the Soper Reese Theatre on Tuesday, August 22, at 1:00 and 6:00 pm. Entry to the film is by donation.  


Director George Stevens’ sweeping saga of family conflict and social consciousness based on Edna Ferber’s best seller was nominated for ten Academy Awards, with a win for Stevens.  The film stars Rock Hudson as rancher Bick Benedict, Elizabeth Taylor as his wife Leslie, and James Dean in his final film role as nouveau oil baron, Jeff Rink. This tale of three generations of Texans is both grand and intimate, a film which registers strongly on all levels whether it is breathtaking panoramic shots of the dusty Texas plains; the personal impact of the story itself; or the resounding message it has to impart.

The movie is sponsored by John H. Tomkins Tax Consultants. Rated G with run time of 3 hours 21 minutes. The Soper Reese Theatre is located at 275 S. Main St., Lakeport, 707-263-0577,
