Description:
BFS presents a holiday screening of 'The Old Man and the Gun,' starring Robert Redford and Sissy Spacek. Based on the true story of Forrest Tucker (Robert Redford), from his audacious escape from San Quentin at the age of 70 to an unprecedented string of heists that confounded authorities and enchanted the public, Redford is understatedly mesmerizing, bringing this gloriously sly film to life with one of the greatest special effects in Hollywood history — his smile. Wrapped up in the pursuit are detective John Hunt (Casey Affleck), who becomes captivated with Forrest’s commitment to his craft, and a woman (Sissy Spacek), who loves him in spite of his chosen profession.

Redford, who has said this will be his last screen role, is still a charismatic presence —
age has done nothing to diminish his ability to command the screen. If it’s truly his final performance, the film is an entertaining and fitting farewell to a legend, bolstered by an ex-ceptionally fine supporting cast. Rated PG-13, Rotten Tomatoes gives this 93-minute film a 90% rating. Closed captioning is available.

Reserved seats: $9.75/General; $9.25/Seniors & Students (plus fees.) Wine, beer and re-freshments are available starting at 6:00 pm; doors open at 6:30 pm; films screen at 7:00 pm. Tickets to BFS screenings are available online at www.theellentheatre.com, by calling the Ellen Theatre box office at 585-5885, or by visiting the box office Wednesday–Saturday, 1–3 pm, as well as two hours prior to any performance.
