Cine-Real and Whirled Cinema Screening of ‘The Sting’ Announced: 27th August!
In collaboration with Whirled Cinema, for the first time we’re projecting celluloid for them, and what better than to see Paul Newman and Robert Redford in the 1973, Oscar winning ’The Sting’.
Directed by George Roy Hill who previously directed Newman and Redford in the western ‘Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid’, ‘The Sting’ is gleefully and openly a lark, sly, witty film; part comedy, part caper. Set in Chicago 1936 the film involves a complicated plot by two professional grifters to con a mob boss (Robert Shaw).
Created by screenwriter David S. Ward, the story was inspired by the real-life con games perpetrated by the brothers Fred and Charley Gondorff and documented David Marurer in his book ‘The Big Con; The Story of the Confidence Man.’
The Sting was hugely successful at the 46th Academy Awards, being nominated for 10 Oscars and winning seven, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Original Screenplay.

New Professional Projector Purchased by Ciné-Real
In preparation for our screening at Wilton’s Music Hall, and our constant desire to improve our screenings, we’ve purchased a new professional 16mm Xenon projector. The Fumeo Mark 300, has a Xenon lamp (bright enough to do outdoor screenings!) and optical sound. The increased lamp power will help to bring out both the colour and the detail in the prints that we screen.
A happy Ümit at the shop
