Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon rode to everlasting fame 25 years ago as two women who go on a crime spree across the American Southwest in “Thelma & Louise.” To mark the milestone anniversary, the film will be back in theaters at 2 and 7 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 21, and Wednesday, Aug. 24.
Locally, the Oscar-winning production will be shown at the Edwards Fresno Stadium 22 & IMAX.
Davis, who is starring in the new Fox series “The Exorcist” this fall, called the idea of the film reaching its 25th anniversary “weird, very weird.”
Never miss a local story.
“It seems like yesterday,” Davis says. “Susan and I have remained really close friends. Whenever we’re in each other’s city, we see each other.”
When Davis is alone, she gets recognized for a variety of projects from the horror film “The Fly” to the TV series “Commander in Chief.” It’s different when she’s with Sarandon as they are remembered for the female buddy movie.
“Thelma & Louise,” which was shot partly in Kern County, was directed by Ridley Scott. It’s the story of two women who accidentally become outlaws and the subject of a manhunt.
The film earned six Oscar nominations, including nods to both Davis and Sarandon in the best actress in a leading role category.
