Christmas Cinema: LA Confidential (18)
Dec 09, 2017
LA Confidential was released 20 years ago and we’re celebrating with a rare screening this Christmas. It’s a hard-boiled noir thriller that rifles through the dirty underwear of Los Angeles, picking away the dirt beneath the glamour.
It’s Christmas 1951, and Russell Crowe and Guy Pearce show two sides of the tough LA cop coin in breakout performances. Kim Basinger is outstanding as the platinum-blonde femme fatale, and a supporting case of amazing character actors brings the black and white newsprint of ‘Bloody Christmas’ to life in brutal colour.
This screening is part of Snowcat Cinema’s Christmas line-up at the Penarth Pier Pavilion. Featuring a delicious mixture of family favourites, Christmas classics and some left-field, cult movies, there’s something for everyone!
Tickets are £6.50 for adults.
Doors open at 7pm for 7:30pm start.
