See film about 1800s at 1960s prices

Mercyhurst University is taking you back to the 1800s at 1960s prices.

The college’s Classic Film Series will screen “How the West Was Won” today at 2 p.m. in Taylor Little Theater.

The cinematic classic from 1962 follows the travels and adventures of members of a family from 1839 to 1889.

If you want to see the film on a big screen today, you only have to pay what it would have cost you 40 years ago. Ticket prices will be as they were in 1962 – 70 cents, according to Mercyhurst’s website.
