Ladies of Burlesque goes on a crime spree and celebrates the 50th anniversary of BONNIE AND CLYDE—a rallying cry of America’s 1960s counterculture and the film that changed the history of film forever. Featuring Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty in scorching hot personifications of the most infamous criminals in American history, Arthur Penn’s masterpiece still shocks and arouses today. Graphic yet moving, BONNIE AND CLYDE capitalized on violence intertwined with sex, inspiring a new wave of Hollywood filmmakers to transcend the boundaries of what the rigid, outdated studio system previously forbade. With an armed and dangerous Rubie Magnitude performing, you’ll be in need of a hip flask, as well as a bulletproof vest to make it through this screening!

Part love story, part corpse-strewn nightmare, BONNIE AND CLYDE was influenced by French New Wave innovators—with Jean-Luc Godard nearly taking the helm (the director was concerned the film would be “too Hollywood” and declined—a decision he would come to regret). Originally deemed a B-picture by its studio, BONNIE AND CLYDE would come to revolutionize youth culture and inspire filmmakers such as Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola with its frank depiction of complicated violence. Screening in a beautiful 4K restoration, its blood-filled climax—which still shocks today—is considered one of the most graphic scenes of violence ever committed to film.
