Nomad Cinema Presents: The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou
Join the wandering band of movie mavericks for a special film screening
How many ways are there to see a movie? Well, when you add movie magicians The Nomad Cinema into the conversation, the possibilities are endless. Nomad Cinema have no fixed home: they journey from venue to venue, always finding fresh pastures to screen cult classics and old favourites. For this one, get ready for the brilliant Bill Murray in The Life Aquatic. Steve Zissou, sea-film auteur, has reason to be melancholy: his partner's been eaten, his wife may be taking up with her ex-husband, a young man appears claiming Steve is his father, his most recent films have tanked, he's having trouble raising money for his venture to revenge his partner, and he's attracted to a pregnant reporter who prefers the pretender. At sea, in pursuit of the shark, will he escape pirates and mutiny, forge the bonds of fatherhood, place his arm around his wife, find the monster of the deep, re-establish box office hegemony, and discover a reason to smile? Only one way to find out. Certificate: 15. Running time: 1 hour 58 minutes. Fully accessible. Food and drink available to purchase. Picnics with alcohol permitted. No glassware. Doors open: 5:45pm.
"An exquisitely evocative movie that elevates rueful melancholia to a superpower."
