Revisionist Western Classic Double Feature!
MCCABE & MRS. MILLER / PAT GARRETT AND BILLY THE KID
MCCABE & MRS. MILLER
1971, Warner Bros., 120 min, Dir: Robert Altman

Director Robert Altman spins fresh variations on archetypal themes and characters in a film that set the mood for 1970s revisionist Westerns. Memorable opening images of an unlikely hero riding toward town, accompanied by the music of Leonard Cohen, introduce this opium dream of a Western, starring Warren Beatty and Julie Christie, with superb cinematography by Vilmos Zsigmond.


35 mm!

PAT GARRETT AND BILLY THE KID
1973, Warner Bros., 122 min, USA, Dir: Sam Peckinpah

Director Sam Peckinpah’s take on the famous outlaw’s rise and fall is nothing less than magnificent - a sprawling, plaintive, achingly exquisite reflection on loss of all kinds. Billy (Kris Kristofferson) and his loose-knit gang (among them Bob Dylan, who also supplied the beautiful score) butt heads with cattle industry interests devouring the countryside, something that steers them onto a collision course with old comrade and new sheriff, Pat Garrett (James Coburn). Watch for the "Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door" sequence with Sheriff Baker (Slim Pickens) and his wife (Katy Jurado), one of the most heartbreakingly beautiful women in the history of Western cinema. With Harry Dean Stanton, R.G. Armstrong, Donnie Fritts, L.Q. Jones.
