Thelma & Louise
The General Public
In 1989, an animated sitcom about a suburban family and their small town debuted, changing television--and American culture--forever. One of the keys to that show's influence? Extended parodies of some of the most iconic films ever made. As a tribute to that beloved show, The Roxy is proud to present Cinema Springfield: You May Remember Such Films As... a weekly series of those movies, each of them followed by a very special epilogue, all through July and August.

Meek housewife Thelma (Geena Davis) joins her friend Louise (Susan Sarandon), an independent waitress, on a short fishing trip. However, their trip becomes a flight from the law when Louise shoots and kills a man who tries to rape Thelma at a bar. Louise decides to flee to Mexico, and Thelma joins her. On the way, Thelma falls for sexy young thief J.D. (Brad Pitt) and the sympathetic Detective Slocumb (Harvey Keitel) tries to convince the two women to surrender before their fates are sealed.
