Join us for a special Family-Fun screening of The Flintstones, in celebration of Archaeology Week at Tūhura Otago Museum.
Big-hearted, dim-witted factory worker Fred Flintstone lends money to his friend Barney Rubble so that he can adopt a baby. As thanks, Barney swaps his IQ test for Fred'sduring an executive search program. After getting promoted, however, Fred becomes embroiled in the dastardly scheming of his boss Cliff Vandercave, who enlists his secretary, Sharon Stone, to seduce Fred, angering Fred's wife, Wilma.
The Flintstones first burst onto the scene in 1960, as Hanna-Barbera Productions’ attempt to juxtapose mid-century American sitcom tropes with Stone Age flavour. It was wildlysuccessful, and ran in its original form until 1966, and in syndication ever since. Celebrate Archaeology Week in the most “Yabba dabba doo!” way possible, and join us for some good, clean anachronistic Stone Age fun.
