The French Connection – 18th May

Buy advance tickets for this event:

Gene Hackman and Roy Scheider are narcotics cops fighting an international drugs ring in this 1971 multi Oscar winner.

The 1970s was a golden era for Hollywood film making and William Friedkin’s tough New York thriller set the bar high at the beginning of the decade for directors such as Coppola, Scorsese and Spielberg to leave their imprint on the screen.

With an international cast, a gripping plot, one of THE great movie car chases and superb performances, The French Connection is an all time classic.

Not to be missed if never seen before and always worth revisiting for another viewing!

Themroc feat. live soundtrack by Alex Paterson – 7th May

image004Feast Film Nights are proud to present this rarely shown anarchic comedy from 1973. Themroc returns home from work one day and decided to throw out all trappings of modern life. His flat is turned into a cave and he reverts to a sort of Neolithic lifestyle, only speaking in grunts…

For this performance only Alex Paterson (The Orb) has created a new soundtrack for the film, which he will play live. A one off experience that is not to be missed..

‘You don’t love me!’
‘Yes, I do!’
‘I do too, but I’m gonna mace you in the face!’

Estranged brothers Francis (Owen Wilson), Peter (Adrien Brody) and Jack (Jason Schwartzman) reunite for a train trip across India. The siblings have not spoken in over a year, ever since their father died. Francis is recovering from a motorcycle accident, Peter cannot cope with his wife’s pregnancy, and Jack cannot get over his ex-lover. The brothers fall into old patterns of behavior as Francis reveals the real reason for the reunion: to visit their mother in a Himalayan convent.

Wes Anderson’s quirky comedy-drama pays homage not only to the films of Jean Renoir, Louis Malle and Satjayit Ray, but also to the stunning landscape of Rajasthan. The film won the Little Golden Lion at the 2007 Venice Film Festival.
