Mid­night Spe­cial Star­ring: Michael Shan­non, Jae­den Lieber­her Di­rected by: Jeff Ni­chols Show­ing at Moonrise Cinema, May 28

An­other big week­end at Moonrise Cinema is com­ing up, with Cap­tain Amer­ica: Civil War screen­ing on Fri­day, May 27, be­fore Mid­night Spe­cial shows on Satur­day, May 28.

Writer and direc­tor Jeff Ni­chols again proves that he is one of the most com­pelling sto­ry­tellers of our time with the sci-fi thriller Mid­night Spe­cial.

A provoca­tive, genre-de­fy­ing film as supernatural as it is in­ti­mately hu­man, it fol­lows a father, Roy (Michael Shan­non), who goes on the run to pro­tect his young son, Al­ton (Jae­den Lieber­her), a boy with mys­te­ri­ous pow­ers that even Roy him­self can­not com­pre­hend.

What starts as a race from re­li­gious ex­trem­ists and lo­cal law en­force­ment quickly es­ca­lates into a na­tion­wide man­hunt in­volv­ing the high­est lev­els of the US Govern­ment.

Both films be­gin at 7pm and tick­ets are avail­able at www.moon­risecin­ Some tick­ets will also be avail­able at the gate.

Moonrise Cinema is lo­cated at the Pil­bara In­sti­tute on Dampier High­way.

The bond be­tween a father and his su­per­nat­u­rally gifted son is ex­plored in sci-fi thriller Mid­night Spe­cial.
