Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis recreate the magic 30 years later at a screening of Thelma And Louise

It is easily one of the most iconic films of the 1990s, scoring competing Best Actress Oscar nominations for its two leading stars.

And Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis were in attendance at a special drive-in charity screening of their now-classic film Thelma And Louise on Friday evening, on the occasion of the movie’s 30th anniversary.

The stars wore adorable black tops that said ‘She’s my Thelma & I’m her Louise,’ or the reverse, for the event, which raised partial proceeds to benefit The Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media and L.A. Regional Food Bank.

Time flies: Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis were in attendance at a special drive-in charity screening of their now-classic film Thelma And Louise on Friday evening, on the occasion of the movie’s 30th anniversary

The covid-conscious, drive-in event was held outdoors at the Greek Theater in Griffith Park, in Los Angeles, California.

Both Susan, 74, and Geena, 65, looked luminous in denim jeans and similar auburn-toned hair worn down at their shoulders. 

The Academy Award winners perched at the driver’s seat of an aqua 1966 Ford Thunderbird, similar to the one featured in the brilliant Ridley Scott film, and posed for a selfie just like the one featured on the Thelma & Louise poster.

The movie, about two put-upon best friends from Arkansas who find their power and get in major trouble in the process, is also noteworthy for other reasons. 

Chief among them are incredible supporting performances from Harvey Keitel, Michael Madsen and most notably Brad Pitt, in the role that made him a Hollywood megastar.

Thelma & Louise was released on May 24th, 1991.
