Here Comes The Bandit

40 years ago a movie about a beer run made history. This weekend Smokey and the Bandit makes it way back into the theaters. Catch it here in Junction at The Regal Canyon View 14.

1977 was a special year at the movies. Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Smokey and The Bandit, and Star Wars all made their theater debuts that summer. Star Wars would go on to entertain generations with its numerous sequels, prequels, and merchandise. However, that years other summer blockbuster combined CB radios, Coors beer, and a black Pontiac Trans AM to secure its own special place in movie history.

You remember the story, right?  “The Bandit” has 28 hours to drive a truckload of Coors beer from Texarkana, Texas, to Atlanta. Difficult enough, but really tough with “Smokey,” Sheriff Buford T. Justice on your trail.

The screenings are Sunday, May 21st; 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m., Wednesday the 24th 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. Tickets for Smokey and the Bandit can be purchased online by visiting or at the Regal Canyon View 14 box office.
