JOHNNY GUITAR (1954)



On the outskirts of town, the hard-nosed Vienna (Joan Crawford) owns a saloon frequented by the undesirables of the region, including Dancin' Kid (Scott Brady) and his gang. Another patron of Vienna's establishment is Johnny Guitar (Sterling Hayden), a former gunslinger and her lover. When a heist is pulled in town that results in a man's death, Emma Small (Mercedes McCambridge), Vienna's rival, rallies the townsfolk to take revenge on Vienna's saloon -- even without proof of her wrongdoing.

Watch the trailer here.

About the Admission + Donation options

On March 15th, The Nightlight Cinema moved to an online virtual cinema platform due to Covid-19. With the Nightlight Under the Stars screening series, we are excited to safely offer a live cinema experience as an option for our audiences while we continue to operate our virtual screening rooms. Making this commitment takes money, but we also must remain accessible and keep ticket prices affordable. Will you consider a donation to The Nightlight in addition to your ticket purchase? Together, we can continue to advance cinema and community in tandem. The Nightlight is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit art house theater in the heart of Akron. Your donation is fully tax deductible. If you are interested in making a larger donation or becoming a marquee sponsor for our screening series, please email Board Chair James Crutchfield at info@nightlightcinema.com.
