Don’t miss a free advanced screening of BOYHOOD this Monday at Vintage Park!

A movie twelve years in the making, BOYHOOD is written and directed by Texas filmmaker Richard Linklater and it is, without a doubt, the best movie I've seen so far this year. 

In the summer of 2002, Richard Linklater began filming the movie in Houston with young actor Ellar Coltrane. Every year for the next twelve years, Linklater would pick up the camera and film another fifteen or so minutes - the story picking up another year later in the life of Ellar's character. The resulting film is a sprawling story of youth itself - a one-of-a-kind document about what it's like to grow up.

Coultrane stars as Mason Jr., the son of two divorced parents played by Patricia Arquette and Ethan Hawke. Over the course of the film, audiences will see Coultrane grow from a confused, aimless young dreamer into an even-more confused young man in search of a purpose. Essentially, an anthology of twelve interconnected short films starring the same actors, BOYHOOD is an episodic chronicle of Texas youth. Mason Jr. goes to an Astros game, moves to San Marcos, goes out drinking on 6th Street in Austin with his dad - in other words, spends his youth not too dissimilar to many of us.

I cannot wait for you to have the chance to see BOYHOOD for yourself. That's why I'm so pumped that we were able to team up with the Houston Film Critics Society to offer an advanced screening of the film this Monday, June 16 at Vintage Park.

The screening begins at 7 PM and seating is first come, first served. You must RSVP to the screening via this EventBrite link. This RSVP does not guarantee you a seat but you will not be allowed into the theater if you are not on this list.

Don't miss your chance to be one of the first Houston audiences to experience this homemade movie miracle. More so than any movie featuring giant robots or caped crusaders, this is the film that's going to have you talking this summer.
