Levee Hosting Old Man & the Gun Party
The new Robert Reford film The Old Man & the Gun excited local fans last year as the Hollywood legend and the star-studded cast shot scenes in Covington and Newport.
Now, the film gets the premiere treatment at Newport on the Levee on Thursday, October 11.
A private screening is planned for guests, but a public pre-screening party will take place prior at Axis Alley starting at 6 p.m.
The party start at Axis Alley at 6 p.m.
In The Old Man & the Gun, Redford plays real-life bank robber and escape artist Forrest Tucker, and stars alongside Sissy Spacek, Casey Affleck, Danny Glover, Tom Waits, and others.
The River City News caught video of Redford shooting a scene on Madison Avenue in Covington, as his character entered what we know as the Citizens Federal Savings & Loan, which was renamed for the movie.
Editor's note: An earlier version of this article included a link to purchase tickets for the screening, but the event is private and not open to the public.
