Classic Film Series on 35mm: Forrest Gump

Fri, July 19, 2019 @ 8:00pm

Category: film

Mainstage @ Union County Performing Arts Center (UCPAC)
1601 Irving Street
Rahway, NJ  07065


“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!
