One of cinema’s most iconic duos, Paul Newman and Robert Redford, team up for a second time in THE STING as con artists in the Great Depression plotting revenge against a New York City crime boss (Robert Shaw). Instantly we’re thrown into an atmosphere of masterful grifting, where all the world’s a stage, literally. With the combined charisma of Newman’s devilish blue eyes and Redford’s boyish blond hair, their compelling on-screen chemistry not only tricks the toughest gangsters but also manages to rope the audience in, one twist at a time, as they pull off one of the greatest heists ever seen in film. Winner of seven Academy Awards®, including Best Picture, Director, and Original Screenplay, this classic film marks an important moment in American cinema. THE STING is a quintessential film of the 1970s, showcasing American cinema’s separation from the studio system into more independent territories. Come join us under the stars for this very special celebration of an American classic’s 40th anniversary.
This event is FREE and open to the public.
