The Wild Bunch Special Screening – November 12, 2009

posterTWB-copieOn November 12, The Jules Verne Film Festival will present a special 40th Anniversary screening of Sam Peckinpah’s classic 1969 Western The Wild Bunch.

The event, to be held at the beautiful Million Dollar Theatre in the historic Broadway district of Downtown Los Angeles, will feature a special homage to the surviving principle leads—including the legendary Ernest Borgnine— who will be on hand to receive the “Jules Verne Lengendaire Award.”

The Jules Verne Festival is such a great, unique event, so why not spend an evening with a classic film, some silver screen legends and, in doing so, demonstrate your support for the preservation of film as well as Los Angeles’ architectural heritage! This one is a no-brainer.

Tickets are only $15 and proceeds go to the JVA Nature & Education Program.  For more information and full lineup, visit the Jules Verne festival website

  1. My name is Joie Gould. I was married briefly to Sam Peckinpah. Unfortunately, I did not know about the anniversary screening
    of The Wild Bunch.
    I would have love to have been there for the celebration.
    I hope it was a great success.
    Kind regards.
