A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS (1954)
The Man With No Name (Clint Eastwood) enters the Mexican village of San Miguel in the midst of a power struggle among the three Rojo brothers (Antonio Prieto, Benny Reeves, Sieghardt Rupp) and sheriff John Baxter (Wolfgang Lukschy). When a regiment of Mexican soldiers bearing gold intended to pay for new weapons is waylaid by the Rojo brothers, the stranger inserts himself into the middle of the long-simmering battle, selling false information to both sides for his own benefit.
"Every genre-loving moviegoer should see at least once projected on a theater screen." - Simon Abrams, Village Voice

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 email@example.com.
