Story Mansion Lawn (Corner of Willson & College))

Upcoming Dates & Times


Saturday, August 26, 2017 at 7:00pm - 11:00pm

Saturday, August 26th, the Bozeman Film Society and Friends of the Story Mansion partner for the 8th 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 Robert Redford’s Oscar-winning film, A River Runs Through It, based on a 1976 novella about family and fly fishing on Montana’s Blackfoot River. Written by Norman Maclean, a University of Chicago literature professor who grew up in Missoula and 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.

 

Executive Producer Patrick Markey will give an opening presentation, joined by some cast and crew. 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. The Story Mansion, including rooms featured in the film, will be open for visitation. The film begins at dusk and is rated PG. Rain date is August 27. Additional support for Story Under the Stars 2017 is provided by KTVM 6&42, Bozeman Angler and Simms Fishing.
