Movie Night at the Museum

February 8 @ 6:30 pm


The Crested Butte Mountain Heritage Museum and The Gunnison County Public Libraries present the film King of Hearts on Saturday, February 8th. Doors at 6 pm, movie at 7 pm. FOR FREE TICKETS, visit either the Crested Butte or Gunnison Library to "check out" a ticket using your library card. Limited free tickets available. $5 at the door. Cash bar and popcorn. During World War I, Scottish soldier Private Plumpick is sent on a mission to a village in the French countryside to disarm a bomb set by the retreating German army. Plumpick encounters a strange town occupied by the former residents of the local psychiatric hospital who escaped after the villagers deserted. Assuming roles like Bishop, Duke, barber, and circus ringmaster, they warmly accept the visitor as their King of Hearts. With his reconnaissance and bomb-defusing mission looming, Plumpick starts to prefer the acceptance of the insane locals over the insanity of the war raging outside. Since its 1967 debut, King of Hearts has become a worldwide cult favorite and stands out as one of de Broca’s most memorable films. This movie became a local favorite during the 70s, with many identifying with this zany dark comedy. This is a French movie with English subtitles. Costumes encouraged!
