Q Night at the Movies features The Way We Were 10/17

Posted on Oct 12, 2020

Q Night at the Movies presents 1973's The Way We Were. This romantic drama was a huge hit, as was the titular Oscar-winning single from the film's soundtrack sung by co-star Barbra Streisand. Directed by Sydney Pollack and also starring Robert Redford, this is the ultimate love story of when opposites attract. Before the movie we hear from the creators of HBO's Westworld. Following the movie, we have a remembrance of Mary Tyler Moore and music from a classic Joni Mitchell concert. It all starts at 7:30 p.m. Saturday on Q.

On Story at 7:30 p.m. Westworld writers and producers Bridget Carpenter and Carly Wray talk about research, what to do when the story conflicts with authenticity and crafting a world that mirrors the past.

Feature Film The Way We Were at 8 p.m. Opposites attract when, during their college days, Katie Morosky (Barbra Streisand), a politically active Jew, meets Hubbell Gardiner (Robert Redford), a feckless WASP. Years later, in the wake of World War II, they meet again and, despite their obvious differences, marry. Hubbell wants to be a screenwriter, so the two move to California despite Katie's objections. They prosper there, but as the Hollywood blacklist looms, Katie's activism threatens her husband's reputation.

Mary Tyler Moore: A Celebration at 10 p.m. A celebration of Mary Tyler Moore's career includes video clips and comments from friends and co-stars.

Joni Mitchell Live at the Isle of Wight Festival 1970 at 10:59 p.m. Joni Mitchell's 1970 performance at the Isle of Wight Festival in England.
