BFF and The Black Box team up to present a celebration of all things blazing; live music, fancy dress, hay bales, beans & beers!
Vulgar, crude, and occasionally scandalous, this hilarious bad-taste spoof of Westerns, co-written by Richard Pryor, features Cleavon Little as the first black sheriff of a stunned town scheduled for demolition by an encroaching railroad. Little and co-star Gene Wilder have great chemistry, and the delightful supporting cast includes Harvey Korman, Slim Pickens, and Madeline Kahn. Some of this film’s sequences, notably a gaseous bean dinner around a campfire, have become comedy classics.
Fancy dress prizes available for the best cowpoke costume, cattle rustler, Calamity Jane or Gram Parsons impersonators.The ‘Acoustics Collective’ Go country with live music after the film playing a host of swing your pants C&W classics. D.J. ‘Dusty Chaps’ will be spinning country classics such ‘Get Your Tongue Outta My Mouth ‘Cause I’m Kissing You Goodbye’, and ‘If You Leave Me, Can I Come Too?’ after the band. So stick around for a hoedown!
"Blazing Saddles is like that. It's a crazed grabbag of a movie that does everything to keep us laughing except hit us over the head with a rubber chicken."Roger Ebert
