The screening of the 1973 movie, which is rated PG, takes place from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Sidney Pollack is director.
Streisand plays Katie Morosky, a political activist who briefly meets the preppy Hubbell Gardiner (Redford) in 1937. Nearly eight years later, they are reunited in New York, when leftist radio worker Katie spies military officer Hubbell in a nightclub.
They fall in love and head to Hollywood so that Hubbell can write a screenplay. But the Communist witch hunt by the House Committee on Un-American Activities tears them apart.
Katie and Hubbell meet again in the 1960s in the bittersweet romantic drama.
“The Way We Were” received Oscars for best original dramatic score and best original song.
