Movies Off the Wall: Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
Thursday, June 6, 2019
7 PM gates open; movie starts at sundown
This summer, Movies Off the Wall goes West with a series of films inspired by the Crocker’s three summer exhibitions. Movies are screened open air in the Museum’s outdoor courtyard, against the Teel Family Pavilion’s iconic architecture. Arrive early for trivia and giveaways, and enjoy dinner and drinks at the Crocker Cafe by Supper Club. For the best seat in the house, bring your own chair!
In two of the most charismatic performances captured on film, Paul Newman and Robert Redford star as young outlaws robbing banks and holding up trains – including the famed Union Pacific Railroad, featured in the summer exhibition The Race to Promontory: The Transcontinental Railroad and the American West. With comedy, panoramic views, and one of the all-time great screen pairings, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid is a classic American Western that charms audiences young and old.
