To celebrate Positive Ageing Month this October, the Alley Theatre is showing a special vintage screening of the 1969 classic ‘Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid’ on Friday 11th October at 1.30pm
The 1969 film which also celebrated its 50th anniversary this September, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid tells the story of two of the most famous outlaws in history, as they escape America in search of a more successful criminal career. Join us for a ‘movie afternoon’ following the pair as they attempt to make their fortune.
In Wyoming at the turn of the century, famous outlaws Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid are the leaders of the infamous Hole In The Wall gang. When an attempted train robbery goes badly wrong, the pair escape to South America, accompanied by Sundance’s lover, Etta. There they attempt to continue their life of crime, expecting to make their fortune. Things do not go according to plan…
With the charismatic combination of Paul Newman and Robert Redford, accompanied by a memorable score by Burt Bacharach, this film has earned its title as one of the greatest Westerns of all time, and a defining moment of American cinematic history.
Positive Ageing Month is a month-long festival of events and activities for older people all across the country. It celebrates the contribution older people make to their communities.
