Part of Weekend Classics: Somebody’s Watching Me.

Tue, Mar 29 at 8:00pm: Introduction from Belcourt staff member Coley Hinson | BUY TICKETS

Truman Burbank (Jim Carrey) has the feeling that he’s being watched. He doesn’t know how right he is…

Every second of every day, from the moment he was born, for the last 30 years, Truman Burbank has been the unwitting star of the longest running, most popular documentary-soap opera in history. The picture-perfect town of Seahaven that he calls home is actually a gigantic soundstage. Truman’s friends and family — everyone he meets, in fact — are actors. He lives every moment under the unblinking gaze of thousands of hidden TV cameras.

Welcome to “The Truman Show.” The whole world is watching.

“THE TRUMAN SHOW finds a near-miraculous balance of humor and feeling in the keen intelligence of the script by Andrew Niccol and the prodigal inventiveness of Dead Poets Society director Peter Weir at his very best.” —Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

“A gemlike picture crafted with rare and immaculate precision..." —Todd McCarthy, Variety

“One movie you can pronounce a modern classic with absolute confidence.” —Tom Charity, Time Out
