The 90-minute showing begins at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 21 at the Lensic, 211 W. San Francisco St.
The comedy Western film was voted No. 6 on the American Film Institute’s 100 Years … 100 Laughs. The classic stars Cleavon Little and Gene Wilder as a sheriff and sharpshooter defending a small town from villains Slim Pickens and Harvey Korman. It features a brilliant cast that includes Brooks, Huddleston and Oscar-nominated Madeline Kahn.
