It started with a simple question: “You guys wanna go see a dead body?” It ended with one of the greatest coming-of-age movies of all time: Stand By Me. Before he gave us killer cars, creepy clowns and psycho fangirls, Stephen King gave us four best friends who went on a life-changing journey that had a permanent effect on the way we reflected on our childhood friendships. This weekend the Texas Theatre is bringing back our old pals Gordie, Chris, Teddy and Vern as it screens a special 35-mm print of Stand By Me. Let’s go looking for Ray Brower’s body together at 5 p.m. Sunday at the Texas Theatre, 231 W. Jefferson Blvd. Tickets are $9.50 with discounts available.
