Thelma and Louise

13 February
Location informationArc Cinema
Event cost$25/$20

Meek housewife Thelma (Geena Davis) joins her friend Louise (Susan Sarandon), an independent waitress, on a short fishing trip.

However, their trip becomes a flight from the law when Louise shoots and kills a man who tries to rape Thelma at a bar.

Louise decides to flee to Mexico, and Thelma joins her. On the way, Thelma falls for sexy young thief JD (Brad Pitt).

The sympathetic Detective Slocumb (Harvey Keitel) tries to convince the two women to surrender before their fates are sealed.

Ticket includes a glass of bubbles (or soft drink) and a cinema snack bag to grab on the way in and enjoy during the film.

‘A rare thrill – a gleefully offbeat road movie in which two women exult in the heady freedom of America's lonesome highways’ - New York Daily News
