Description

Join us for our inaugural presentation of Silver Screen at Silverwood Park, featuring a screening of Time Bandits, the all-ages comedy gem by Minneapolis native Terry Gilliam, which will begin at dusk.

In the case of rain or inclement weather, this screening will be held indoors in Silverwood Park's Great Hall.

In this fantastic voyage through time and space from Terry Gilliam, a boy named Kevin (Craig Warnock) escapes his gadget-obsessed parents to join a band of time-traveling dwarfs. Armed with a map stolen from the Supreme Being (Ralph Richardson), they plunder treasure from Napoleon (Ian Holm) and Agamemnon (Sean Connery)—but the Evil Genius (David Warner) is watching their every move. Featuring a darkly playful script by Gilliam and his Monty Python cohort Michael Palin (who also appears in the film), Time Bandits is at once a giddy fairy tale, a revisionist history lesson, and a satire of technology gone awry.
