'Moonrise Kingdom' star Neal Huff back in Pelham tonight
If the overwhelmingly positive reviews for Wes Anderson’s “Moonrise Kingdom” haven’t convinced you to see the movie, perhaps you’ll be inspired by the Pelham Picture House’s interview tonight with one of its stars, Pelham native Neal Huff.
Huff, whose screen credits include “The Wedding Banquet,” “Big Daddy” and “The Good Shepherd,” will take questions after tonight’s 7:30 screening at the Picture House (175 Wolfs Lane, Pelham, 914-738-7337; www.thepicturehouse.org). Tickets are $9 for adults, and $8 for senior citizens, students and children.
In “Moonrise Kingdom,” Huff is part of a star-studded cast that includes Rockland County resident Bill Murray, as well as Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton and Jason Schwartzman. Set in 1965, the movie follows two 12-year-olds who fall in love and run away into the New England wilderness before literal and figurative storms invade the sleepy island community.
After tonight, the Pelham Picture House is scheduled to screen the film (without Huff in attendance) through Aug. 9.
