Free Outdoor Movie in Winter Park

On Thursday the 28th Smokey and the Bandit will be shown for free in historic Winter Park.

On Thursday, March 28th you can catch a free screening of Smokey and the Bandit at Winter Park’s Central Park. This classic action, comedy movie from 1977 tells the story of Big Enos (Pat McCormick) who wants to drink Coors at a truck show, but in 1977 it was illegal to sell Coors east of the Mississippi River without a permit. Truck driver Bo “Bandit” Darville (Burt Reynolds) agrees to pick up the beer in Texas and drive it to Georgia within 28 hours. When Bo picks up hitchhiker Carrie (Sally Field), he attracts the attention of Sheriff Buford T. Justice (Jackie Gleason). Angry that Carrie will not marry his son, Justice embarks on a high-speed chase after Bandit.
