Join us for an afternoon screening of Bill Forsyth's classic 1983 film "Local Hero" with an in-depth onstage interview with co-star Peter Riegert, in conversation with Marc Hershon.

Up-and-coming Houston oil executive "Mac" MacIntyre (Peter Riegert) gets more than he bargained for when a seemingly simple business trip to Scotland changes his outlook on life. Sent by his colorful boss (Burt Lancaster) to the small village of Ferness, Mac is looking to quickly buy out the townspeople so his company can build a new refinery. But after a taste of country life Mac begins to question whether he is on the right side of this transaction. Co-presented by the California Film Institute   $20, All Ages
