Academy Award® Winner

A New Cinema Event to screen in select cinemas in Australia on August 25 & 26

The acclaimed stage production BARRYMORE starring Academy Award® winner Christopher Plummer, directed & adapted by Érik Canuel, will be shown at select cinemas in Australia on Saturday 25 & Sunday 26 August. BARRYMORE is based on the play by William Luce. The production also features John Plumpis in the role of "Frank, the Prompter".

In 1997, Luce's play BARRYMORE premiered on Broadway in a celebrated production starring Mr. Plummer, who won the Tony Award for Best Actor in a Play for the role. Fifteen years later, Plummer has recreated his performance for multiple high-definition cameras on the stage at the Elgin Theater in Toronto.

BARRYMORE, set in 1942, follows acclaimed American actor John Barrymore, a member of one of Hollywood's most well known multi-generational theatrical dynasties. No longer a leading box office star, the production finds Barrymore reckoning with the ravages of his life of excess. He has rented a grand, old theatre to rehearse for a backer's audition to raise money for a revival of his 1920 Broadway triumph in Richard III. It leads him to look back on the highs and lows of his stunning career and remarkable life.

Directed, and adapted for the screen, by Érik Canuel (Bon Cop, Bad Cop), BARRYMORE stars Christopher Plummer in the tour de force performance of his career.
