Tuesday, November 27, 2018
Watch the movie that introduced us to the Brat Pack. We will be showing The Outsiders (1983), the movie based on S.E. Hinton’s popular novel.
A teen gang in rural Oklahoma, the Greasers are perpetually at odds with the Socials, a rival group. When Greasers Ponyboy (C. Thomas Howell) and Johnny (Ralph Macchio) get into a brawl that ends in the death of a Social member, the boys are forced to go into hiding. Soon Ponyboy and Johnny, along with the intense Dallas (Matt Dillon) and their other Greaser buddies, must contend with the consequences of their violent lives. While some Greasers try to achieve redemption, others meet tragic ends.
This movie is intended for adults and mature teens. Children under the age of 13 may attend only if accompanied by an adult. This program is free and movie-goers may bring their own snacks and covered non-alcoholic beverages.
