Free Summer Cinema – Moonrise Kingdom

August 12, 2022

UCSB Arts & Lectures
Friday night under the stars! Enjoy the free Summer Cinema at the Santa Barbara County Courthouse. 
 
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 offshore – and the peaceful island community is turned upside down in every which way. The all-star cast features Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Bill Murray and Frances McDormand among others, and introduces Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward as Sam and Suzy, the boy and girl. (Wes Anderson, 2012, PG-13, 94 min.)
 
 
“A gorgeously shot, ingeniously crafted, über-Andersonian bonbon that, even in its most irritatingly whimsical moments, remains an effective deliverer of cinematic pleasure.” Slate
 
Bring breathable blankets or a low chair, a picnic and your friends.
 
Please respect the lawn and your fellow filmgoers: only bring blankets that are permeable (no plastic/nylon/tarps), and chairs that are low-backed and low to the ground. Setup permitted starting at noon on the day of the screening.
