See #Birdman Oscar & BAFTA-winner – Thur 18 Jun @Beckenham

Winner of SIX BAFTAs and FOUR OscarsBirdman: Or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) stars Michael Keaton in a barn-storming role with superb ensemble support from Emma Stone, Ed Norton, Lindsay Duncan, Naomi Watts and Zach Galifianakis. A black comedy, Birdman is about a washed-up actor, who once played an iconic superhero, who battles his ego and attempts to recover his family, his career and himself in the days leading up to the opening of his Broadway play. Book tickets below – £8/£5 – no booking fees.

“You’ll believe a man can fly. Or you’ll believe that believing you can fly and flying are sort of the same thing. Either way, Alejandro González Iñárritu achieves takeoff in a big way with his crazy, freaky-deaky, hellzapoppin’ showbiz comedy Birdman (or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance). I certainly levitated with enjoyment… At certain moments, watching it felt like inhaling laughing gas mixed with helium…Birdman is a delicious and delirious pleasure.” 5 stars – Peter Bradshaw (The Guardian 25/12/14)
