June 4, 2011: "Superman: The Movie" Screening

As part of their Summer Nights Film Series, the Indianapolis Museum of Art will feature a special screening of "Superman: The Movie" on August, 26th at 9pm.

Richard Donner directed the film, which stars Christopher Reeve as Superman, as well as Gene Hackman, Margot Kidder, Marlon Brando, Glenn Ford, Phyllis Thaxter, Jackie Cooper, Marc McClure, Valerie Perrine and Ned Beatty.
