UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif., Nov. 28, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the landmark Oscar® winning classic, The Sting, Universal Pictures announces an exclusive screening event of the stunning 4K restoration of the 1973 film, starring Academy Award® winners Robert Redford and Paul Newman, at the legendary TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, California, on December 11, 2023, at 7 p.m. pacific.

The special screening event will include a panel discussion moderated by acclaimed Turner Classic Movies host Ben Mankiewicz. The panel will feature The Sting’s Academy Award® winning producers Tony Bill and Michael Phillips, the film’s Oscar® winning screenwriter David S. Ward, former studio executive and Academy Award® nominated producer Mike Medavoy and revered literary agent Stu Miller.
Tickets for the event are available now and can be purchased at tclchinesetheatres.com, here.
The 4K restoration, released in 2021, is available from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment on 4K UHD, Blu-ray and Digital.  
Directed by Oscar® winner George Roy Hill at the dawn of the new Hollywood in the 1970s, The Sting stars Paul Newman and Robert Redford as two con men in 1930s Chicago. After a friend is killed by the mob, they try to get even by attempting to pull off the ultimate “sting.” No one is to be trusted as the twists unfold, leading up to one of the greatest double-crosses in movie history.
Also starring Academy Award® nominee Robert Shaw, Robert Earl Jones, Oscar® nominee Charles Durning, Ray Walston, Academy Award® nominee Eileen Brennan and Oscar® nominee Sally Kirkland, the film, written by David S. Ward and produced by Tony Bill, Michael Phillips and Julia Phillips—the first woman in history to win an Oscar® for Best Picture—would become a critical and commercial phenomenon.
Nominated for 10 Academy Awards® and winning seven —including for Best Picture, Writing, Directing, Editing, Costume Design, Art Direction and for Marvin Hamlisch’s musical score, anchored by Scott Joplin’s unforgettable, iconic song, “The Entertainer”—The Sting would become the second highest grossing film of the year and has endured as a beloved cornerstone of arguably the most innovative and daring decade in American cinema.
