Matthew Bourne's The Car Man

A sensational new dance event for cinemas from the internationally acclaimed choreographer Matthew Bourne and his Dance Company New Adventures, The Car Man is loosely based on Bizet’s popular opera (CARMEN) and has one of the most thrilling and instantly recognisable scores in classical music, brilliantly arranged by Terry Davies.

The Car Man was first seen in 2000, winning the Evening Standard Award for Musical Event of the Year. The familiar 19th Century Spanish cigarette factory becomes a greasy garage-diner in 1960’s America where the dreams and passions of a small-town are shattered by the arrival of a handsome stranger. Fuelled by heat and desire, the inhabitants are driven into an unstoppable spiral of greed, lust, betrayal and revenge. Lez Brotherston’s epic design, Chris Davey’s evocative lighting and Matthew Bourne’s vivid storytelling take in a wealth of cinematic references, creating a powerful and uncompromising vision of small-town America. Starring Alan Vincent, Zizi Strallen, Kate Lyons, Dominic North, Christopher Trenfield. 

This screening contains scenes of a sexual nature, brief nudity, strobe lighting and gunshots, and has an age guidance of 12 years and over.
