Kino Arsenal & Bar
On the occasion of the release of Wes Anderson’s newest film “Asteroid City” we would like to “spend the night” with you in the cinema watching three of his much earlier films.
We do not plan major breaks between films so we can already tell you one thing:
prepare sleeping bags, pillows and some phone numbers of food suppliers.… Pizza in the screening room? No problem! Want to come in a pyjama to be sure you’ll be as comfortable as possible? Great!
We’ll do our best to get you through the night!
20:00 BOTTLE ROCKET (OmeU)
1996 | 1h 31m | drama, comedy, crime | stars: Luke Wilson, Owen Wilson, Ned Dowd
Amazing debut from Wes Anderson and the Wilson brothers!
They’re not really criminals, but everybody’s got to have a dream.
Wes Anderson first illustrated his lovingly detailed, slightly surreal cinematic vision (with cowriter Owen Wilson) in this visually witty and warm portrait of three young misfits. Best friends Anthony, Dignan, and Bob stage a wildly complex, mildly successful robbery of a small bookstore, then go “on the lam.” During their adventures, Anthony falls in love with a South American housekeeper, Inez and they befriend local thief extraordinaire Mr. Henry. Bottle Rocket is a charming, hilarious, affectionate look at the folly of dreamers, shot against radiant southwestern backdrops, and the film that put Anderson and the Wilson brothers on the map.
22:00–22:30 Eating break
We will prepare special salty snacks like quiche and others for you at a fair price, but we recommend ordering (for example pizza) from your favorite delivery service at 10pm, so you can strengthen yourself.
22:30 The Royal Tenenbaums (OmeU)
2001 | 1h 50m | drama, comedy | stars: Bill Murray, Gene Hackman, Anjelica Huston, Gwyneth Paltrow, Luke Wilson, Owen Wilson, Ben Stiller
One of Anderson’s greatest talents is his lightness of touch: The Royal Tenenbaums is about disappointment, regret, grief, loneliness, and at‐times suicidal depression, and it has the Nico, Nick Drake, and Elliott Smith songs to prove it. — The Quardian
Royal Tenenbaum and his wife, Etheline had three children— Chas, Margot, and Richie — and then they separated. Chas started buying real estate in his early teens and seemed to have an almost preternatural understanding of international finance. Margot was a playwright and received a Braverman Grant of $50,000 in the ninth grade. Richie was a junior champion tennis player and won the U.S. Nationals three years in a row. Virtually all memory of the brilliance of the young Tenenbaums was subsequently erased by two decades of betrayal, failure, and disaster. The Royal Tenenbaums is a hilarious, touching, and brilliantly stylized study of melancholy and redemption from Wes Anderson.
00:30 The Darjeeling Limited (OmeU)
2007 | 1h 31m | drama, comedy | stars: Owen Wilson, Adrien Brody, Jason Schwartzman, Bill Murray, Anjelica Huston
I want us to be brothers again, like we used to be.
Wes Anderson has made so many great movies, it’s inevitable that one of them would be a bit overlooked. The Darjeeling Limited is that movie.
This is a story about three brothers who, following their father’s death, take a train journey across India that (they hope) will provide healing, self‐discovery and enlightenment.
