Greetings to all of you fans of the talkie western flicks. I don't know about you but hanging around the bunk house in this crappy weather and reading old magazines and Ned Buntline novels is getting old. We can break up the monotony by attending SRPC Cowboy Movie Night tomorrow, Wednesday, May 3rd. Movie Night will again be held in the Sunny Ridge theater at the Sunnyside Nursing and Rehabilitation Center on Erie Avenue
. Show time is 6:30 PM. Bring your dinner or a snack of your own but pop corn and other delights will be provided.
The movie this week will be "Cowboys and Aliens." It is a delightful mix of the old west cowboy genre and the modern sci-fi genre. If you were a fan of the Flash Gordon serials and Saturday morning cowboy heroes, you just might enjoy this picture as both are thrown together and intermingled.
The movie stars Daniel Caig, Harrison Ford, Olivia Wilde, and Sam Rockwell. It is directed by Jim Favreau (Iron Man). It was released in 2011 and runs 1 hr, 56 minutes.
The story line is about an amnesiac gunslinger with a strange metalic bracelet on his left wrist, who wonders into the town of Absolution which is under the iron fist and thumb of Colonel Dolarhyde. Our anmesiac gunslinger ends up uniting a posse of outlaws, cowboys and Apache braves to fight off strange invaders from beyond earth. It makes for an interesting clash of 1870's technology versus futuristic technology.
I apologize for the late Movie Night Notification but the movie decision didn't get settled until today. We had planned to show a movie about saddles on fire but the town fathers were against it. Our back up movie was on the Overland Stage, which got held up, and didn't arrive in condition to show.
Looking forward to seeing you all.
