Film Screening: Bonnie & Clyde (15 (1967))

Thursday 29th March -6.45pm

Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway star in Arthur Penn's 1967 lauded crime drama based on the true story of outlaws Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow.

In the 1930s, car thief Clyde (Beatty) teams up with Bonnie (Dunaway), the daughter of one of his victims, and together they become notorious bank robbers and Depression-era folk legends. They form a gang with Clyde's brother, Buck (Gene Hackman), Buck's wife, Blanche (Estelle Parsons), and gas station employee C.W. (Michael J. Pollard). When one of their robberies goes wrong, Clyde commits a murder and, with the police hot on their trail, the gangsters find themselves constantly on the run.

The film received ten Oscar nominations, winning awards for Best Cinematography and Best Supporting Actress for Parsons.

banner image for exhibition section

The crypt gallery at St Mary in the Castle is an exhibition space unique to the building. With its rich history as a burial for members of the Churches congregation, the crypt is brimming with atmosphere and intrigue. The alcoves make it a perfect space for group shows, or for dividing different aspects of your work, and lends itself to the installation of multi-media artworks.

The space has been used to exhibit the art of international and local artists and has been a key location for local arts festivals, including Coastal Currents and the PhotoHastings season.

St Mary in the Castle has played host to numerous high profile exhibitions, most notably a Lee Miller and Roland Penrose Surrealist Exhibition that ran alongside a performance in our auditorium of ‘The Angel and the Fiend’, a dramatic reading of the life of Lee Miller.

Running concurrently with major exhibitions at the De La Warr Pavilion, St Mary in the Castle has begun hosting exhibitions in partnership with Project Artworks.

As well as being located in the centre of Hastings, the space receives through traffic from the St Marys restaurant and attendees to the many St Mary in the Castle events.

Here at St Marys we endeavour to have an excellent visual arts program that compliments the beauty of the building and places us at the centre of the emerging arts scene here in Hastings.
