Bonnie & Clyde film, getaway car stealing hearts in Primm

It’s truly a love story to die for.

They met. They were smitten at first sight. They traveled the central United States during the Great Depression on a two-year crime spree robbing banks at gunpoint and, oh you know, just being generally freaking adorable and outlaw-y until they were ambushed by authorities in North Louisiana and shot to death in their getaway car.

OMG, it’s soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo romantic, I can barely even type right now.

The notorious duo — Bonnie Elizabeth Parker and Clyde Chestnut Barrow — have been the subject of film, television, music and even musical theater. And now they’re returning to the screen in a new two-night mini-series on the History, Lifetime and A&E networks.

Primm Valley Casino Resorts, just a 20-minute drive from Las Vegas, is inviting fans to watch the premier of “Bonnie & Clyde” on Sunday, Dec. 8.

While you’re there you can also check out the couple’s actual bullet-riddled car — the original V8 Ford covered in bullet holes after the pair’s ambush in May 1934 — as well as other authentic memorabilia on exhibit at Whiskey Pete’s Resort and Casino in Primm.

The viewing party is open to the public and guests are invited to enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. Don’t worry, you won’t have to go all Bonnie & Clyde on Whiskey Pete’s. The food, drinks and viewing are free.

Doors open at 7:30 p.m. with the show beginning at 9 p.m.
