First Friday Films - Caddyshack
Ackerman Family Amphitheater
8:00 pm (Doors open at 7:30 pm)
$12
Rated R

First Fridays at the Museum is now First Friday Films. Join us for a screening of Caddyshack starring Chevy Chase, Rodney Dangerfield, Bill Murray and Ted Knight. This 1980 sports comedy was directed by Harold Ramis and has become a cult classic. The film follows a teen named Danny who works as a caddy at the snobby Bushwood Country Club and is desperately trying to raise money for his college education. In an attempt to gain votes for a college scholarship he volunteers to caddy for a prominent and influential club member played by Knight. A wealthy golf guru played by Chase offers Danny some New Age advice and Dangerfield's character shakes up the Country Club with his antics. Meanwhile, Murray's character is on a quest to stop the gopher wreaking havoc on the golf course.

According to the critics: Though unabashedly crude and juvenile, Caddyshack nevertheless scores with its classic slapstick, unforgettable characters, and endlessly quotable dialogue.

The museum will reopen at 7:30 pm. Caddyshack will begin at 8:00 pm. This screening will take place in our outdoor amphitheater. Attendees are allowed to bring in cushions and blankets. Wine, beer, soda, water and a variety of movie snacks will be available for purchase.
