“The Beach Bum”
May 16 - May 19
Just in time to herald in Tybee’s Beach Bum Parade, we bring you the ultimate summer season launch, Matthew McConaughey in the role of a life time as, you guessed it, a beach bum!
Moondog is a fun-loving, pot-smoking, beer-drinking writer who lives life on his own terms in Key West, Florida. He’s a poet by profession but dedicates all his time medicated. He has a wife that has a lover and a daughter that settled into marrying a man so dull he makes a Mormon seem exciting. If he can put down the drugs for just one minute, he may finally be able to put his talent to good use and finish the next great American novel.
Even NPR loves it, saying, “An American Dream presented as perverted, and decaying, yet splashed in neon and soaked in sunshine, ‘The Beach Bum’s’ brilliant embrace of body, pleasure, and art feels like Paradise.” Rated R.
Five screenings: Thurs., May 16, 7 pm; Fri, May 17 and Sun. May 19, 3 & 7 pm. Tickets $8
