WIN TICKETS TO THE LADIES OF BURLESQUE AND ‘JOHNNY GUITAR’!!!!

All manners of cinema come in some pretty magnificent and unexpected forms.

It’s the story of Vienna (Joan Crawford) a saloon owner with a past a little too sordid for the local townspeople.  Persecuted by the townspeople, Vienna must protect her life and property when a lynch mob led by her sexually repressed rival, Emma Small (Mercedes McCambridge) attempts to frame her for a string of robberies she did not commit and drive her out of town on a rail. Enter Johnny Guitar (Sterling Hayden), a guitar-strumming ex-gunfighter, who once was and may still be in love with Vienna. With the leads at their operatic best, the table is now set for an epic showdown.

Presented in a glorious 4K restoration as a part of The Royal Cinema’s Ladies of Burlesque series; Johnny Guitar from director Nicholas Ray is so much more than a western as it presents allegoric themes and presents issues that were so far ahead of their time in a stunning film presentation that both embraced and pushed every single aspect of the western genre.  It is without a doubt one of the favourite films of our editor and boss and thanks to our friends at the Royal Cinema we’ve got some double passes to give to you.  Your chance to win simply couldn’t be easier.

E-mail us at contests@intheseats.ca with your full name, ‘Johnny Guitar’ in the subject header and the answer to the following question.  The steel jawed Sterling Hayden has not only starred in one, but two films from the visionary Stanley Kubrick, give us the names of both films.

The contest is open to all residents of Toronto, one entry per household and it will run until Sunday February 4th at 11:59PM.  All winners will be informed via e-mail after the contest has closed.
