Celebrate the 45th Anniversary of this classic drama with a screening at the Orpheum! Presented by Emprise Bank.

Randle P. McMurphy (Jack Nicholson), a free-spirited con, fakes insanity so he can go to a mental hospital instead of prison. Immediately, his contagious sense of disorder runs up against numbing routine. On one side is McMurphy. On the other is soft-spoken Nurse Ratched (Louise Fletcher), among the most coldly monstrous villains in film history. At stake is the fate of every patient on the ward.

Based on Ken Kesey's acclaimed bestseller, this film swept all five major 1975 Academy Awards: Best Picture, Actor (Nicholson), Actress (Fletcher), Director (Milos Forman) and Adapted Screenplay. The superb cast includes Brad Dourif, Danny DeVito, and Christopher Lloyd in his film debut.
