The Searchers

We start off with John Ford’s inimitable 1956 tale of a driven Civil War vet (John Wayne, in one of his finest roles) who spends years hunting for the Indians who abducted his niece (Natalie Wood). It’s a grand spectacle and a riveting investigation of a complex antihero—in all, one of the most influential films of all time in any genre. And that final shot is a knockout.

Tickets: $8 (members), $13 (nonmembers)
