    Name: Friday Flicks at The Varsity: Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid
    Date: February 8, 2019
    Time: 6:30 PM - 9:00 PM CST
    Event Description:

    Paul Newman and Robert Redford star in ?Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,? screening Feb. 8 at The Varsity.

    George Roy Hill?s 1969 Western chronicles the mostly true tale of the Hole in the Wall Gang?s last months. Witty pals Butch (Paul Newman) and Sundance (Robert Redford) join the gang in successfully robbing yet another train with their trademark non-lethal style. After the pair rests at the home of Sundance's schoolmarm girlfriend, Etta (Katharine Ross), the Gang robs the same train, but this time, the railroad boss has hired the best trackers in the business to foil the crime. After being tailed over rocks and a river gorge, Butch and Sundance decide that maybe it's time to try their luck in Bolivia. Taking Etta with them, they live high on ill-gotten Bolivian gains, but Etta leaves after their white-hatted nemesis portentously arrives. Their luck running out, Butch and Sundance hole up in a barn surrounded by scores of Bolivian soldiers waiting for the pair to make one last run for it. (PG)
