VTA's 2017-18 Cool Films Series Presents COOL HAND LUKE
Victoria Theatre Association's 2017-2018 Cool Films Series presents an action-packed film of rebelliousness, starring Paul Newman, George Kennedy, and Strother Martin in COOL HAND LUKE: Aug. 11, 7 p.m.; Aug. 12, 7 p.m.; and Aug. 13, 3 p.m. $6 single tickets and $35 passbooks of 10 tickets are available for purchase through Ticket Center Stage at the door or by calling 937-228-3630, toll-free: 888-228-3630.
Famed for the man and the motion picture's resistance to conformity, COOL HAND LUKE is winner of four awards, including an Oscar for Best Actor in a Supporting Role (George Kennedy). Cool and gusty prisoner, Luke Jackson, battles authority through a series of escapes and recaptures, while becoming a role model for fellow prisoners shared through his line "You're an original, that's what you are!" Where better to see this 1967 film than the historic Victoria Theatre? Rated PG.
The 2017-2018 Cool Films Series runs until Aug. 27, presenting different films each weekend. Purchase $6 single tickets and $35 10-ticket passbooks by calling Ticket Center Stage; 937-228-3630, toll-free: 888-228-3630, or at the Box Office located in the Benjamin & Marian Schuster Performing Arts Center.
