Moonrise Kingdom at the French Legation

September 17, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema and French Legation are proud to present you with outdoor movies on the beautiful French Legation lawn. Bring your fold out chairs, blankets, and beverage of choice to join us for a night of entertainment.

Feature: Moonrise Kingdom

“Set on an island off the coast of New England in the summer of 1965, MOONRISE KINGDOM tells the story of two 12-year-olds who fall in love, make a secret pact, and run away together into the wilderness. As various authorities try to hunt them down, a violent storm is brewing off-shore – and the peaceful island community is turned upside down in every which way. Bruce Willis plays the local sheriff, Captain Sharp. Edward Norton is a Khaki Scout troop leader, Scout Master Ward. Bill Murray and Frances McDormand portray the young girl’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Bishop. The cast also includes Tilda Swinton, Jason Schwartzman, and Bob Balaban; and introduces Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward as Sam and Suzy, the boy and girl.”

“For pure-hearted adventurers who share the secret map, MOONRISE KINGDOM is a joy that cannot be eclipsed.” – Joe Williams

“It’s an adventure, a love story, a biblical allegory complete with approaching storm, a mash note to composer Benjamin Britten and a profoundly touching discourse on the needs of troubled children.” – Amy Biancolli
