Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid screening

August 17, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

For Robert Redford’s birthday, we present the Oscar-slaying, 1969 bank-robbing classic BUTCH CASSIDY & THE SUNDANCE KID, w/ chocolate gold coins for the taking (no gunpointing required)!

Mr. Redford is an honorary San Martian who spent his childhood summers here at his grandparent’s ranch, near the present-day Big H.E.B. In fact, Mr. Redford — who is repsonsible for two films that portray the beauty & importance of rivers — directly descends from families who arrived to San Marcos by wagon train in the late 1700s to settle down; his great great grandfather is Zachariah Bugg, the first sheriff of Hays County, for whom the street adjacent to Half Price Books is named.

Cinema Club is working w/ Councilwoman Jane Hughson to pass a City proclamation that recognizes Mr. Redford’s historical link to our community & celebrates his vital advocacy for independent, progressive cinema.
