Robert Redford's lyrical direction sets the tone for this evocative adaptation of author Norman MacLean's memoir of his idyllic Montana youth. The MacLean family is presided over by the strict but encouraging Rev. MacLean (Tom Skerritt) and his loving wife (Brenda Blethyn). Craig Sheffer stars as the young Norman, the older son in his family, who takes his school work and writing a bit too seriously for Paul (Brad Pitt), the impetuous younger son, to take much stock in. Paul would rather have a good time, drink and play cards than get involved with academic study. Where Norman wants to be a college literature professor, Paul would prefer to stay in Montana all his life and wrangle some kind of job writing for a local newspaper. But, ironically, Paul is the better fly fisherman and in this way attains a sense of perfection. The film also details the MacLean boys' involvement with a colorful group of town's people -- including a young Indian woman Paul decides to date and the defiant Jessie (Emily Lloyd), whom Norman later marries.

SAFETY

To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, we are following these guidelines:

  • All staff will wear face masks at all times

  • Patrons must stay in their cars to watch the film (no sitting outside the car)

  • Cars will be spaced 6 feet apart

  • Patrons will wear a face mask / covering if they need to leave the car for any reason

  • Restroom facilities are inside the museum. Have a flashlight handy for the walk to and from
  • Patrons must carry out their own trash

 

EVENT POLICIES

  • Please remove all roof racks before attending, so you are not blocking the view for others

  • When arriving at the Owl’s Head Transportation Museum, follow signs and staff instructions for traffic flow.

  • Show your ticket confirmation (printed or on phone) to staff upon entering. Give your name if tickets were ordered by phone.

  • Staff will guide you to a specific parking spot, with bigger vehicles placed in the back row. Vehicles will forward, with the option to face backwards if you park in the back row (to accommodate sitting in the back of a truck bed, or with an open back car hatch).

  • Because you will be using your car radio for sound, you may want to start your car for a minute every hour to keep the battery alive.

  • Some newer cars have headlights that don’t turn off when the car is in standby / accessory mode. Strand staff will use painters tape and black trash bags to block out these headlights.

  • Once the film ends, wait for staff to instruct you to leave. Cars will be guided to the exit in the order they are parked.

  • If your car battery is dead at the end of the night, please remain in your vehicle. Once all other vehicles have left, a staff member will jump start your car with a jump box and cables.
