space is a lonely town
It's a Western. It's a science fiction mystery. It's a film noir replete with gangsters hiding in shadows secretly plotting crimes.
The American Astronaut
It's a rock'n'roll musical featuring fully choreographed dances and limelight singing.
It's. The American Astronaut!
Labelled "nothing short of phenomenal" by The New York Times, Cory McAbee's retro space-western/rock-opera The American Astronaut is a bonafide cult hit.
This true indie original has been orbiting its way around campuses, late night repertory cinemas and film festivals across America for the past 5 years, and is still going strong.
Complete with a pre-screening performance by the Sonic Manipulator, and space-cocktails on arrival, the late night cult cinema experience lives on when Freaky Fridays presents The American Astronaut.
Lifts off 10pm, Friday 18 January at ACMI Cinemas.
