Nudged to Be Shown at the LanTex Theater

LanTex 3 with Nudged posters

Nudged is scheduled to be shown at the LanTex Theater in Llano on Friday, September 11th. There will be a wine and snacks reception at 6:30 pm and the film will begin at 7:30 pm with Q&A afterwards.

The folks at Llano are excited to show Nudged. They have a cool old Texas movie house and Nudged was created to be shown in cool old Texas movie houses. Llano is 85 miles from Wimberley. So you can get home that night or spend the night. The lodging options in Llano are shown at Llano Lodging.

The LanTex Theater web site has Information and Driving Directions.

For Nudged this is the second picture show and not the last (of course the premiere was at the wonderful Corral Theater).

Fundraiser for Flash Flood Relief

Sanctuary in the Village

Fundraiser Update – The fundraiser described below, raised $1154. The Barnabus Connection was having a matching funds drive at the time, so it looks like our end donation will be $2308! I counted 64 people in attendance. It was a most pleasant and relaxing afternoon.


Recent record breaking flash floods in the Wimberley valley have caused massive damage and loss of many homes. We are organizing a fundraiser to assist people in re-building their homes and lives.

Nudged will be shown at the Sanctuary in the Village on Sunday, June 7th. Doors open at 2:30 pm and the movie begins at 3 pm. It is 1 hour and 36 minutes long. The director, composer and probably other cast and crew will be in attendance to chat about making movies in Wimberley. The Sanctuary in the Village is at 501 Old Kyle Rd. and is located in the old Baptist Church.

All proceeds (100%) will go to the Barnabas Connection and be used to assist Wimberley residents who are recovering from the recent flooding. Barnabas is local non-profit organization and has partnered with the State Disaster Relief Coordinator to disburse funds to Wimberley Valley residents.

Admission is five dollars at the door. Refreshments will be available on a love offering basis. There are some chairs, but bring a chair and your own drinks.

Premiere Miracles

It’s raining this morning. With thunder. And it has been raining like this for the last two weeks. Last night, however, there was no rain during the premiere of Nudged. Many people were affirming “no rain” and it was made so. Also, the new digital projector at the Corral Theater had been malfunctioning during tests all week, but last night it worked perfectly. Nudged on the big screen looked and sounded wonderful (and I’m an unbiased observer, right?).

A few photos are below. There is a whole album of premiere pics on my Facebook page. My trusty Assistant Director, Andrea Ballentine, tried to get a shot of everyone there. Go to the album. If you are not tagged already, please tag yourself and add more photos if you wish. There were about 120 people at the premiere. It was an evening of movie magic.

First Review of Nudged

The movie deals with some classic themes and some new-age; a pleasant combination for a local film. “Nudged” plays a sort of soft ambient music throughout and has its moments of delightful humor and dark themes as well. What rings especially true is the happenings of everyday small-town life and the effects we all have on one another’s lives.”
