Oliver! – Carol Reed
Saturday, October 19, 1 PM
This season’s Discovery Cinema family film selections are inspired by The Sonnabend Collection exhibition and art produced during the 1960s.
In this award-winning adaptation of the Broadway musical based on the Charles Dickens novel, 9-year-old orphan Oliver Twist (Mark Lester) falls in with a group of street-urchin pickpockets led by the Artful Dodger (Jack Wild) and masterminded by the criminal Fagin (Ron Moody). When Oliver’s intended mark, Mr. Brownlow (Joseph O’Conor), takes pity on the lad and offers him a home, Fagin’s henchman Bill Sikes (Oliver Reed) plots to kidnap the boy to keep him from talking.
Entry to films is included with admission or museum membership.
