Program Description

Event Details

For the month of August, we will be watching movies directed by Peter Bogdanovich.  Peter came onto the scene in the late 60s and immediately made a string of instant classics before becoming a respected authority on American film history.

On this night, we will be watching Peter Bogdanovich's 1971 film "The Last Picture Show" starring Timothy Bottoms, Jeff Bridges, and Cybill Shepherd.  It is rated R.

In 1951, a group of high-schoolers come of age in a bleak, isolated, atrophied North Texas town that is slowly dying, both culturally and economically.
