After Val Kilmer attended not one but TWO Rolling Road Show events in Austin over Labor Day weekend, the actor and artist posted the sweetest tribute on Instagram.

Along with multiple pictures of his time in the ATX, Kilmer praised Austin calling it a force of nature. “Everyone has a special place in their heart for Austin, but for me it’s never whatever I’m hearing. It’s always something else,” he said. “It usually comes down to quiet moments, from the people.”

And that’s not all he said. You can read the entire statement here:

While in the ATX, Val Kilmer took part in a very special screening of Tombstone at J. Lorraine Ghost Town in Manor on August 31 and a screening of Top Gun at Camp Mabry on September 1. Both events featured live music, games, photo ops and other activities.

A co-star from Top Gun even popped by to join Kilmer on stage. Snyder, Texas, native Barry Tubb played Wolfman in the classic film.
