THE WILD BUNCH films till

For the fourth film in his eight-film “carte blanche” series (continuing thru April 2022), retiring Cleveland Institute of Art President + CEO Grafton Nunes has selected Sam Peckinpah’s notorious western, one of the most controversial (and also celebrated) films of the past 52 years. William Holden, Robert Ryan, Edmond O’Brien, Ernest Borgnine, Warren Oates, and Ben Johnson star in the movie, which follows a band of aging, anachronistic outlaws on the Texas-Mexico border early in the 20th century. They attempt to pull off one last job to get them through changing times that are fast leaving them behind. “The Gotterdammerung of westerns.” –Michael Sragow. Adults only! DCP. 144 min.

Special admission $12; members, CIA & CSU I.D. holders, and those age 25 & under $9. No passes or twofers.
