The two films Salomé and Wilde Salomé are showing at both the Connaught and Dome Cinemas in a special screening at 4.00 pm today (Sunday September 21st).
CineStage is delighted to present this one night only event featuring one of the greatest actors of all time, Al Pacino.
The evening’s entertainment will be comprised of 3 parts:
Salomé (78 minutes): the Oscar Wilde play is set in the time of Jesus and is the story of Salomé (Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain appearing in her first movie role), a princess whose stepfather, King Herod (Al Pacino), drunkenly promises whatever she desires if she performs the erotically charged “Dance of the Seven Veils” for him. Her demand for the head of John the Baptist – the only man whom Herod fears – leaves the king in a terrible position.
Wilde Salomé (95 minutes): the documentary (directed by Al Pacino) takes us on a journey that focuses on his fascination and obsession for Wilde’s work after seeing the play performed in London with Stephen Berkoff in the role that Pacino would go on to fill.
Live Q&A with Al Pacino (45 minutes approximately): The event will come to a conclusion with a live Q&A with the man himself from London’s BFI Southbank, hosted by fellow acting legend and Wilde aficionado, Stephen Fry.
The Connaught Cinema is at 3 Union Place, Worthing and the Dome Cinema at 21-22 Marine Parade on Worthing seafront.
