A new interpretation on a timeless classic is showing downtown.
The Urban Institute of Contemporary Arts, or UICA, is hosting screenings of the film “The Man Who Killed Don Quixote” at various times from May 31-June 13.
Starring Adam Driver of “Star Wars” fame and Jonathan Pryce, who fans may remember from HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” the movie follows Toby (Driver), a cynical film director, who becomes pulled into a world of “time-jumping fantasy,” where he meets Don Quixote (Pryce), a Spanish cobbler who believes Toby to be Sancho Panza.
The 132-minute film was an official selection for the Cannes Film Festival.
“The Man Who Killed Don Quixote” has a Tomatometer rating of 63% at Rotten Tomatoes.
UICA’s screening dates and times for the 2019 film are online.
Pre-sale tickets are not available. Tickets can be purchased at the guest services desk beginning at noon on the date of each screening.
Tickets are $5 for UICA members and $10 for non-members.
