The Senior Center's Movie Matinee is "The Sting."

Robert Redford plays Depression-era confidence trickster Johnny Hooker, whose friend and mentor Luther Coleman (Robert Earl Jones) is murdered by racketeer/gambler Doyle Lonnegan (Robert Shaw).

Hoping to avenge Luther's death, Johnny begins planning a "sting" to destroy Lonnegan enlisting the aid of "the greatest con artist of them all," Henry Gondorff (Paul Newman). The twists and surprises that follow are too complex to relate in detail -- suffice to say that you can't cheat an honest man, and that you shouldn't accept everything at face value.

The Sting became one of the biggest hits of the early '70s and won seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Screenplay, and Best Adapted Score for Marvin Hamlisch's unforgettable setting of Scott Joplin's ragtime music.
