The 10th film from the visionary mind of Wes Anderson and brings to life a collection of stories from the final issue of an American magazine published in a fictional 20th-century French city.

On the occasion of the death of its beloved Kansas-born editor Arthur Howitzer, Jr., the staff of The French Dispatch, a widely circulated American magazine based in the French city of Ennui-sur-Blasé, convenes to write his obituary. Memories of Howitzer flow into the creation of four stories: a travelogue of the seediest sections of the city itself from The Cycling Reporter; “The Concrete Masterpiece,” about a criminally insane painter, his guard and muse, and his ravenous dealers; “Revisions to a Manifesto,” a chronicle of love and death on the barricades at the height of student revolt; and “The Private Dining Room of the Police Commissioner,” a suspenseful tale of drugs, kidnapping and fine dining.

There will be a The French Dispatch screening with English subtitles displayed at the bottom of the screen to help viewers who are d/Deaf, hard of hearing or just need help with dialogue to enjoy the film fully, on Thursday 18 November. Click here to book.
