It’s been nearly 20 years since Brokeback Mountain lost to Crash for Best Picture at the Academy Awards.
We’ll never understand that voting decision (or a certain one in 2016), but we haven’t watched the runner-up film in what feels like forever.
If you’re in the same boat, this Sunday you have the chance to see the movie on the big screen once again as The Texas Theatre presents a 3:00 p.m. screening. The theater partners with Deep Vellum, a non-profit literary arts organization.
Texas writer Larry McMurtry worked on the screenplay for the film and it’s based on a short story by Annie Proulx. The day before the screening, you can join fellow literary enthusiasts for a reading of the short story.
At the Sunday screening, there will be a pop-up bookshop, too, where you can purchase other McMurty titles, book-length editions of the short story the film is based on, and browse other titles from Deep Vellum.
We just know we’re ready for some hot cowboy-on-cowboy action in the wilderness.
That never, ever gets old to us.
