“Forrest Gump,” the 1994 blockbuster starring Tom Hanks, will be played on 35 mm film! Each ticket includes free popcorn and entry to a pre-show in which an organist plays the historic “Biggest Little Wurlitzer!”
Forrest doesn’t have a high IQ, but he makes up for it in earnestness, loyalty, and a knack for being in the right place at the right time. From humble beginnings as a bullied child with leg braces, Forrest runs his way out of Alabama to become a member of the College Football All-America Team, a recipient of the Medal of Honor, a ping pong champion, and the owner of a shrimp-based restaurant, all while unwittingly interacting with some of the most influential historical figures of the time. Throughout it all, Forrest nurtures a pure love for Jenny Curran (Robin Wright), a childhood friend whose tumultuous life intertwines with his in brief intervals. Based on the 1986 novel of the same name, “Forrest Gump” is a funny, endearing look into the life of a funny, endearing man!
Paul Citti will be the organist for this event!
