Originally released in 1968, “Once Upon a Time in the West” tells the story of a mysterious man in an imaginary city in the American West who plays the harmonica and joins forces with a notorious desperado to protect a beautiful widow. Though it received mixed reviews when it was first released, today the film is seen as one of the best westerns in the history of cinema and one of director Sergio Leone’s finest works. “Once Upon a Time in the West” will be screened for free at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center on Friday, September 22, as part of the SNFCC's Park Your Cinema initiative.
The screening starts at 8.30 p.m. and moviegoers are advised to bring a blanket to sit on and mosquito repellent. A free shuttle bus service runs between Syntagma Square and the SNFCC throughout the day, stopping at the Syngrou-Fix metro station.
