ROCKLAND — The Strand Theatre presents a free screening of Thelma and Louise (1991) for its members, Thursday, July 11, at 7 p.m.

A movie trivia presentation by theater manager Liz McLeod and light refreshments will be offered starting at 6 p.m. Current Strand Theatre members, as well as any person who becomes a member prior to the show, are invited to attend. Memberships may be also purchased in the lobby immediately prior to the screening.

Meek housewife, Thelma (Geena Davis), joins her independent friend, Louise (Susan Sarandon), on a vacation trip that becomes a flight from the law when Louise shoots and kills a man who tries to rape Thelma at a bar. As they flee to Mexico, Thelma falls for sexy young thief J.D. (Brad Pitt), and the sympathetic Detective Slocumb (Harvey Keitel) tries to convince the two women to surrender.

Directed by Ridley Scott, Thelma and Louise brought first-time screenwriter Callie Khouri many accolades including the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay, according to the Strand, in a news release.

The film is rated R. 

The Strand Theatre, which has been designated a National Historic Landmark by the  National Trust for Historic Preservation, became a nonprofit in January 2014 and is now operated by Friends of the Strand Theatre.
