Pity Party Film Club
Richard Linklater's Before Trilogy

Thu 16 April 2020

We regret this event has been postponed. If you have booked tickets, you will receive a full refund.


Pity Party Film Club presents Richard Linklater's much-celebrated Before Trilogy in its entirety - Before Sunrise (1995), Before Sunset (2004) and Before Midnight (2013).

The cornerstone of director Richard Linklater’s career‑long exploration of cinematic time, this celebrated three-part romance captures a relationship as it begins, begins again, deepens, and strains over the course of almost two decades.

Chronicling the love of Celine (Julie Delpy) and Jesse (Ethan Hawke), from their first meeting as idealistic twenty-somethings to the disillusionment they face together in middle age, The Before Trilogy also serves as a document of a boundary-pushing and extraordinarily intimate collaboration between director and actors, as Delpy and Hawke imbue their characters with a sense of lived-in experience, and age on-screen along with them.

Attuned to the sweeping grandeur of time’s passage as well as the evanescence of individual moments, the Before films chart the progress of romantic destiny as it navigates the vicissitudes of ordinary life.

Doors Open - 17:45
Before Sunrise - 18:00 - 19:45
