The Lighthouse

Double Feature with HIGH LIFE (2:45, 7:15)

2019 • dir Robert Eggers w/Willem Dafoe, Robert Pattinson • 110 min • DCP

A pair of possibly delusional lighthouse keepers on an isolated assignment battle the elements and each-other in an increasingly bizarre and disturbing descent into madness. Funny and chilling in equal measure, Robert Eggers’ follow-up to the much lauded The Witch stars Robert Pattinson and a gleefully maniacal Willem Dafoe.

Staff Pick! Joey

“The Lighthouse is such an effective exercise in projecting claustrophobia, in both a physical and psychological sense, that it’d be unbearable to watch if it weren’t so funny.”
– Alison Willmore, New York Magazine/Vulture

“It’s funny, high-spirited, and giddily loopy, a descent into madness told with the energy of a sea shanty.”
– David Sims, Atlantic

“A black-and-white fever dream of a film that keels between sea shanty and psychodrama, with heavy doses of the absurd.”
– Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly
