SEE YOU AT THE STORY!
“Eventually, all things merge into one,
and a river runs through it.”
Norman MacLean, Author
Bozeman Film Society and Friends of the Story Mansion partner for the 9th season for free summer favorite, Story Under the Stars! Screening on the lush green space of Story Mansion Park, bring your blankets and join us as we celebrate the 25th anniversary of Oscar-winning film, A River Runs Through It, based on Norman Maclean’s 1976 novella about family and fly fishing on Montana’s Blackfoot River. Starring Tom Skerritt, Brad Pitt, Craig Sheffer, Brenda Blethyn and a host of locals, the film introduced the world to fly-fishing and the spectacular, wide-open lands of Montana, including many locations around Bozeman and Livingston—especially the waters of the Gallatin, Yellowstone and Boulder rivers.
Opening remarks by Patrick Markey, Executive Producer of A River Runs Through It. Anyone involved in the 1992 film shoot is invited to share your memories in our Local Yokel VIP tent from 7:30-9:00 pm.
Activities begin at 7:00 pm and include a drift boat photo booth, casting demos and competitions, live porch music, along with food and ice cream trucks. Film begins at dusk and is rated PG. The Story Mansion, including rooms featured in the film, will be open for visitation. Rain date is 08/27. Additional support for Story Under the Stars 2017 is provided by the City of Bozeman, KTVM 6&42, Bozeman Angler, MSU Center for Lands and People, MSU Humanities Institute and Simms Fishing.
