CLASSIC FILMS AT THE TEMPLE: THE SEARCHERS
Join us at the Temple of Music and Art this summer for a special film event! Throughout the summer, we will be opening the Temple of Music and Art to screen eight classic films. For each screening, we will be hosting a featured beverage donor and food truck, AND there will be live music in the courtyard before the film starts. Your $10 ticket also gets you free popcorn and 1 free beverage!
You won’t want to miss this limited-time opportunity to escape the Tucson heat and eat, drink, and enjoy these wonderful films on the big screen!
In John Ford’s revered Western The Searchers (1956), Ethan Edwards (John Wayne) tracks down the Comanche tribe that slaughtered his family and kidnapped his niece (Natalie Wood) with the help of his adoptive nephew (Jeffrey Hunter). Critic Roger Ebert found Ethan Edwards “one of the most compelling characters Ford and Wayne ever created.” The Searchers has been named the Greatest American Western by the American Film Institute and was among the first films selected for preservation in the Library of Congress’s National Film Registry. Join us at the Temple of Music and Art on June 2, and experience one of the all-time great Western films, shot in Arizona’s own Monument Valley!
The film will be introduced by Pulitzer Prize-winning author and journalist Glenn Frankel, who describes the film as perhaps “the greatest Hollywood film that few people have ever seen.”
The screening begins at 7:00 p.m.
Tickets are $10 and may be purchased online or at the door.
