- Sat, August 11 at 7:41 pmDir. René Laloux, France, 1973, 75 min., PG, 16mm, Part of Second Saturday Outdoor Cinema
This is a FREE event located in the Belcourt parking lot.
A band of humans—known as Oms—are kept as domesticated pets by an alien race of blue humanoid giants called Traags in director René Laloux's animated sci-fi classic, said to be based on the Soviet occupation of the Czech Republic. The story centers on an Om named Terr, who escapes his subjugation with a Traag learning device and eventually uses it to educate other Oms and incite them to revolt. The film nabbed the Grand Prix at Cannes and a remake is currently in development by the producers of PARANORMAL ACTIVITY.
Lot will be closed to cars. Bike parking provided by Walk/Bike Nashville.
The Belcourt's parking lot will be closed all day on Saturday, Aug 11 in preparation for our free Saturday Outdoor Cinema. Metered/street parking in Hillsboro Village is free on Saturday, however. Parking is also available in the parking lot of Cornerstone Financial Credit Union—and also in the Vanderbilt lot at Belcourt and 24th Ave. S. (thanks to our Vanderbilt neighbors). We apologize for the inconvenience!
(In the event of inclement weather, cancellation notice will be posted on the Belcourt’s website, Facebook and Twitter by one hour prior to showtime.)
