    "The Odysseys Of Sam Peckinpah
    Kris Kristofferson In Person!"

    "Join us in the Dryden during the weekend of March 31 to April 2 when we pay tribute to the legendary and iconic American filmmaker Sam Peckinpah and one of the director�s key repertory players: musician, songwriter, and actor Kris Kristofferson, who will join us in person. Peckinpah was a complex, outspoken, and hard-living artist who won and lost numerous battles to bring his unique visions to the screen. He made beautifully detailed and poetic character studies that frequently take protagonists (and audiences) on violent and sometimes disturbing odysseys across rough landscapes and into the darkest territories of the soul. Our tribute spotlights three true Peckinpah masterpieces made between 1969 and 1974: The Wild Bunch (screening April 2), Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid (April 1), and Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia (March 31). Each of these films features a hero who has outlived his time, but tries to face a dangerous future with dignity. After the screening of Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid: The Special Edition, Kris Kristofferson, a veteran of three Peckinpah films and many others, will appear on a panel with his fellow musician and co-star Donnie Fritts and noted film editor Paul Seydor, who assembled this Special Edition. Peckinpah scholar Nick Redman will moderate the panel, which will discuss the making of this contemporary Western classic and the legacy of Sam Peckinpah. Also on April 1, Kris Kristofferson will discuss his career in film and answer questions following a separate screening of his first movie, the early seventies gem Cisco Pike, directed by B.W.L. Norton. Tickets for each screening of Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid and Cisco Pike are $10, $8 members and students. Advance tickets are available by credit card online; the Dryden Theatre box office; the Museum�s admissions desk; or at (585) 271-3361 ext. 218. No Take-10 tickets or passes will be accepted for these two special events. "
