The Illusionist

24th Mar 2011 - 7:30pm

The Arts Centre

The Illusionist (Sylvain Chomet, 2010) will be screened on Thursday 24th March at 7.30pm in the Studio Theatre.

The Illusionist is one of a dying breed of stage entertainers. With emerging rock stars stealing his thunder in the late 1950s, he is forced to accept increasingly obscure assignments in fringe theatres, at garden parties and in bars and cafés. However, whilst performing in a village pub off the west coast of Scotland, he encounters Alice, an innocent young girl, who will change his life forever. From Sylvain Chomet, the Oscar nominated and critically acclaimed creator of The Triplets of Belleville/Belleville Rendezvous.
