This hilarious bad-taste spoof of Westerns, directed by Mel Brooks and co-written by Richard Pryor, features Cleavon Little as the first black sheriff of a stunned town scheduled for demolition by an encroaching railroad. Little and co-star Gene Wilder have great chemistry, and the delightful supporting cast includes Harvey Korman, Slim Pickens, Burton Gilliam and Madeline Kahn as a chanteuse modelled on Marlene Dietrich.

Burton Gilliam will be in attendance at the screening. There will be a Q&A with him after the film. The VIP Meet and Greet party will take place before the film.

Tickets: $20
