Part of our COMEDY HEROES season, where we ask some of our favourite comedians to choose their favourite comedy films to screen in our cinema. L.A. Story was chosen by actor and writer Brett Goldstein (SuperBob, Derek, Doctor Who), who won the 2016 BIFA for best supporting actor for his role in Rachel Tunnard’s Adult Life Skills. Brett will also be introducing the film live and in person!
Steve Martin stars as Harris K Telemacher, a wacky TV weatherman who, bored beyond belief by his superfluous job, sometimes pre-tapes his weather reports! An LA “modern man”, he seeks spiritual and personal counsel from an electronic Freeway sign, which points him in the right direction in romance and life.
