This June, The Loft Cinema celebrates the release of offbeat auteur Wes Anderson’s latest cinematic confection, Asteroid City (opening at The Loft Cinema for a regular engagement starting on Thursday, June 22), with a delicious collection of some of his greatest, funniest, most Wes Anderson-ish films, back on the big screen where they belong! Whether you’re seeing them for the 1st or the 101st time, it’s always the right time for The Films of Wes Anderson at The Loft Cinema!
Set on an island off the coast of New England in the summer of 1965, Wes Anderson’s offbeat comic romance Moonrise Kingdom tells the story of two twelve-year-olds, Sam (Jared Gilman) and Suzy (Kara Hayward), 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. Filled with the typically warped humor, off-kilter production design, striking cinematography (shot on 16mm film) and whimsical sentiment that can only be described as “Andersonian,” Moonrise Kingdom features a brilliant cast including Bruce Willis as the local sheriff, Captain Sharp, Edward Norton as Khaki Scout troop leader Scout Master Ward, and Bill Murray and Frances McDormand as the young girl’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Bishop. Also starring Tilda Swinton, Jason Schwartzman and Harvey Keitel. (Dir. by Wes Anderson, 2012, USA, 94 mins., Rated PG-13)
