Nostalgia Night Features “The Sting”
The 10th annual Nostalgia Night film series opens Sunday, Jan. 11, at the Elks Theatre with “The Sting,” winner of seven Academy Awards, including best picture. Robert Redford and Paul Newman star in this 1973 classic.
“The Sting,” a critical and box-office hit, reunited Newman and Redford, who previously starred in “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.” Set in 1936, “The Sting” tells the story of two Chicago con artists (Newman and Redford) who find themselves in a high-stakes game against the master of all cheating mobsters (Robert Shaw), when they set out to avenge the murder of a mutual friend and partner.
Nostalgia Night is an annual series of 10 weekly films presented by The Friends of the Devereaux Library at the South Dakota Tech, in cooperation with the Elks Theatre. Other films being show this year are “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers,” “Woman of the Year,” “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof,” “The Adventures of Robin Hood,” “Suspicion,” “To Kill a Mockingbird,” “Charade,” “Dark Victory” and “The Pink Panther.”
All films begin at 6 p.m. Season ticket books are available for $30 at Prince and Pauper Bookshop, The Devereaux Library at South Dakota Tech, and the Elks Theatre. Tickets for individual films will be available at the door on a space available basis the evening of the show for $4.50 each.
