Classic Tuesday: The Last Picture Show tomorrow!
One of the all time classics of cinema will be showing tomorrow as part of FACT's Classic Tuesday film series...
12 September 2011Starring Cybill Shepherd in her film debut, The Last Picture Show is set during the 1950s in Anarene, a fictional Texan town of cold winters and scorching hot summers. There's not much to do, and the teenage population are fuelled by lust for the opposite sex - a recipe for disaster.
The ultimate rite of passage movie, the entwined story lines are summed up perfectly by Genevive, the all night waitress saying "One thing I know for sure is that a person can't sneeze in this town without somebody offering him a handkerchief...it's an awful small town for any kind of carrying on."
Originally winning two Oscars and re-released earlier this year, The Last Picture Show is the homage to Hollywood's classical era.
Tickets cost £5 (or £4 for FACT Members and concessions). You can buy tickets online, in person at Box Office, or by calling 0871 902 5737.
