Moviegoers celebrated the first day of summer at Wimberley’s Corral Theater on June 21 with an out-of-season singalong fund-raiser. As the sun set on the summer solstice, 202 Hill Country residents belted out the lyrics to “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?” alongside the snow-covered, computer-generated characters of the Disney movie Frozen.
Boyhood, the film shot over 12 years with the same actors, which opened recently in Texas, begins in what the director, Richard Linklater, describes as a “mythical little childhood home that you dream about the rest of your life.”
On Father’s Day, nearly a thousand worshipers arrived at the Cowboy Church of Ellis County, the largest “cowboy church” in the world. After being greeted by four men perched on horses, they filed into the massive warehouse space, a metal building that sits next to the nearly identical Ellis County Expo Center in Waxahachie, just south of Dallas. They drank coffee out of small Styrofoam cups and snacked on doughnut holes.
