The National Gallery’s Cine Club meets again on Monday, 10 June, to continue the season of Oscar winners from the 1950s to the 1970s.
This week’s “oldie, but goodie” is the 1973 heist movie, “The Sting”. Starring movie icons of the era, Paul Newman, Robert Redford and Robert Shaw, the plot unfolds in Chicago in the 1930s.
Two conmen try to avenge a mutual friend’s death at the hands of the mob boss, by pulling off a heist of their own. The story unfolds with several twists and turns.
“The Sting” won seven Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Director.
The movie will begin at 7pm and there is a suggested donation of $5 for refreshments.
