See It On 16mm strikes again with Blazing Saddles, Mel Brooks’ hilarious satire of racism and Western movies! Starring Cleavon Little as Sheriff Bart and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory‘s Gene Wilder as his gunslinging sidekick Jim, the movie has the unique distinction of being acclaimed for its biting critique of bigotry as much as its fart jokes. Don’t miss your chance to see this comedy classic on film and in a theater full of people to laugh along with on Thursday night!
A town—where everyone seems to be named Johnson—stands in the way of the railroad. In order to grab their land, robber baron Hedley Lemar sends his henchmen to make life in the town unbearable. After the sheriff is killed, the town demands a new sheriff from the Governor, so Hedley convinces him to send the town the first black sheriff in the West.
Blazing Saddles screens Thursday, Nov 10th at 8pm.
