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.

Redford and other stars were seen shooting scenes in Covington, Latonia, and Newport.

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.
