The Magnificent Seven

  • Garneau Theatre

    8712 - 109 Street NW, Edmonton, AB (map)

    53.522993 -113.512083

  • Yee Haw! The Metro theatre is showing a Best of the West film series. The Magnificent Seven is the first of these films.

    "Seven American gunslingers – including Charles Bronson, Yul Brynner, and Steve McQueen– are hired by a remote Mexican village to protect it from regular bandit attacks. Each with their own reasons and motives, the seven ride into town and begin training the villagers to defend themselves; and, in the process, bond with the women. After successfully holding off their first bandit ambush, the gunslingers must prepare for further onslaught as the thieves’ leader, Calvera, gathers more men to help him take the town. Despite being significantly outnumbered, the seven boldly continue to fight for the farmers and their town. Adapted from Akira Kurosawa’s 'The Seven Samurai,' the film combines both the narrative and philosophical dimensions of its source material with the action audiences have come to expect from the Western. Although it was at first unfairly compared to its precursor, 'The Magnificent Seven' is now regarded as an American classic." (from the Metro's website, which is below)

    Since the film is at 7pm, let's meet at 6:45 in the main lobby of the Garneau theatre. I'll have my bouquet of artificial flowers with me so that you can find me. But I will have five flowers, not seven. The Magnificent Five is what these flowers are. ;) It is a rather long film, so be prepared. We can always head out afterwards for coffee to discuss the movie, if people are interested.

    Hope to see you then!!

      Hi Christine. That's too bad that you have to miss this. There are other showing of this film, but this is the one that works best for me, which is why I selected this evening for the outing. You can still catch the film on another night, if you're interested in seeing it on the big screen. :)
