The films are hot, but the Revue’s AC will be cranked for the ten films in this summer’s Heat Wave lineup.


Heat Wave at the Revue Cinema, a lineup of the greatest summer movies ever made, continues on August 14th with a 20th anniversary screening of Wes Anderson's  THE LIFE AQUATIC WITH STEVE ZISSOU with an introduction by Neon Dreams curator,  BRENDAN ROSS!

"Son of a bitch, I'm sick of these dolphins."
Revue Cinema and HEAT WAVE cordially invite you to venture into the oceanic depths and explore the Italian Riviera with Team Zissou for the 20th anniversary of Wes Anderson's ambitious and utterly incomparable triumph The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou.
A bomb at the box office in 2004, Anderson's much anticipated followup to The Royal Tenenbaums baffled audiences when they were presented with a sun-baked and punk-influenced tale of revenge and redemption masquerading as a love letter to Jacques Cousteau. Time has been kind to Life Aquatic, and fans have come around to Anderson's big absurdist swings that deliver a hilarious, cynical, and refreshingly adult fairy tale about a once-beloved narcissist celebrity navigating a midlife crisis.
With a career-best performance from Bill Murray and a glowing cast of Anderson usual suspects, Life Aquatic also boasts stunning vistas and a sunny atmosphere that hits a perfect summer stride. So grab yourself a tall glass of Campari and be sure to dress appropriately as you bask in those warm colours and let those cool Seu Jorge tunes wash over you on a hot summer night in The Revue's air conditioned cinema.
