Heights 2023 Celebration of Cinema: The Sting

MON. 4/10 7:30 PM. $12.
When small-time con men Luther (Robert Earl Jones), Kelly Hooker (Robert Redford) and the Erie Kid (Jack Kehoe) unknowingly spoil a money drop of noted Chicago numbers-runner Doyle Lonnegan, the boys are in trouble. And when Luther is murdered, a whole underground team of cons seeks revenge, turning to Shaw Gondorff to pull the wool over the gangster’s eyes and fleece him for millions. With an army of the best character actors in the business, set designs that captured the Depression perfectly, intertitles that harkened back to the silent era (and the Saturday Evening Post of days gone by) and a score of Scott Joplin rags that was was number one on the charts, The Sting took America by surprise… and by storm. Don’t miss the 50th anniversary screening! Playing at Heights Theater.
