Wheeling Film Society presents Bonnie and Clyde
Free Screening at 7 p.m. Friday, March 10, 2017
(Conversation about the film takes place at noon March 14 at the Ohio County Public Library.)
Bonnie and Clyde is Arthur Penn’s masterpiece about Depression-era criminals who became folk heroes. They were Robin Hoods to the impoverished multitudes of the 1930s and revolutionaries to the politicized students of the 1960s. Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway are unforgettable as the leaders of a misfit gang of bank robbers.
Does Bonnie and Clyde romanticize its anti-heroes, or do they get what they deserve? You decide.
Why Go To the Movie Theater?
Oglebay Institute, Wheeling Jesuit University and the Ohio County Public partnered to form the Wheeling Film Society. WFS events bring movie buffs together to watch and discuss classic films. Screenings and post-screening discussions are free and open to the public.
So, get off the couch! Stop binge watching by yourself. Hollywood movies are meant to be seen with others, in the movie theater, on the BIG screen. The actors are figuratively and literally larger than life! Get together with other movie lovers. Engage in thought-provoking conversation. You will learn more about the art and history of cinema, too.
Towngate: A Unique Movie Theater in Wheeling.
A church-turned-theater, Towngate is located in Wheeling’s historic Centre Market District.
At Towngate, not only can you watch live theater productions, spoken word performances, improv and concerts, you can see movies, too! Towngate is also a single screen cinema. On select weekends throughout the year, we show a host of classic and independent films, thought-provoking documentaries and film shorts by local and regional filmmakers. Our movie selections encourage thought and conversation. You won’t be disappointed. Our regulars know we only show quality films. Sometimes, they show up for screenings without knowing the title of the film. They trust us that much.
Whether you consider yourself a film buff or you only like movies for the popcorn, our films will entertain and inspire. See you at Towngate!
