Tron spins on the library’s roof Friday night


Say hi to Bruce Boxleitner (pictured here), who — unlike co-star Jeff Bridges — plays the title character in the original, splendidly dated Tron. The likably wooden actor peaked early with this 1982 Disney production (which is more complicated than you remember), but at least he got to play an iconic part in a benchmark of early computer animation. Tron plays Friday night as the second of this summer’s Pitch-sponsored Off the Wall rooftop movies at the Kansas City Central Library (14 West 10th Street). The free screening starts at dusk (around 8:45), and there’s free beer from co-sponsor KC Bier Co. See kclibrary.org for details.
