“Thelma and Louise” (1991) at the Cerrito on Thursday, April 12, at 7:00

Come along for the ride (a wild one) with “Thelma and Louise” at the Cerrito on Thursday, April 12, at 7:00!

“Thelma and Louise” is a road picture, a buddy picture, except this time the buddies are women. Was it also the opening salvo in the new feminism?

There is definitely a lot of fun involved—the movie is “subversively buoyant,” as one critic put it. It’s about two unforgettable women, out for an adventure, bonding and discovering their inner selves…as things happen.

Of course, men are involved, including Brad Pitt and Harvey Keitel.

Both Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon were nominated for Best Actress. There were six nominations in all for the movie, including for acclaimed director Ridley Scott. The Oscar for best original screenplay went to Callie Khourie.

Few would disagree: “Thelma and Louise” is more relevant than ever, probably in a way that the filmmakers couldn’t have anticipated.

“Thelma and Louise” plays once only on Thursday, April 12 at 7:00 p.m.. All seats are $9.00. Moviegoers are strongly advised to buy advance tickets at the box office or online, as many shows sell out. Arriving early is a good idea, in order to choose your seat and also order delicious food and wine or beer.

Scene

So many choices at Scene! There are flatbread pizzas, a charcuterie and cheese sampler, baked sandwiches, “bites,” salads, desserts, and much more. You can enjoy them there, or have them brought to your seat while you watch the movie. The atmospheric food/wine bar is a fun place to hang out, with special wines and beers available. Check it out!
