There will also be a cash bar available onsite.
In the American frontier, two rival gangs wrestle for control of the border town of San Miguel and terrorise the citizens. However, their monopoly on the town is swiftly disrupted by the arrival of a mysterious gunslinger, who deliberately antagonises the feud for his own benefit.
THEY SAY: “By definition a landmark — it invented a whole damn sub-genre, set Clint Eastwood upon the road to superstardom, and managed something impossible: it rejuvenated the ailing Western. In short, it was like the arrival of punk rock […] Sergio Leone’s first spaghetti Western is now a deserved classic of the genre it invented. And it’s got Clint. What more could you want?” – Empire, 2000
WE SAY: A masterpiece of the genre, that started the ‘Man With No Name’ trilogy – rounded off by A Few Dollars More and The Good, The Bad and The Ugly – this classic is essential viewing for both longstanding Western fans and newcomers to the genre alike.
