Cast: Michael Keaton, Edward Norton, Emma Stone, Naomi Watts
The cult hit of 2015. Michael Keaton plays film star Riggan Thompson who is desperate to resurrect his career and reputation as a serious actor by staging a play. However, the popularity of his former role as a comic book super hero Birdman proves a little more difficult to put behind him than he had hoped.
Featuring great performances from its ensemble cast, Birdman won Oscars for Best Picture and Best Director at the 2015 Academy Awards, as well as Best Original Screenplay and Best Cinematography for its dizzying ‘single-shot’ filming.

Film fans can once again watch a movie during the popular Moonlight Flicks season at Chester’s Roman Garden from July 5th until August 27th, with over 35 screenings of 9 different films, 5 evenings a week.
Programmed by Storyhouse, the city based arts organisation who will run the cultural centre of the same name, currently under construction on Northgate Street.
The line up with everything from 80s classic Dirty Dancing to post-apocalyptic sci-fi Mad Max Fury Road.
Also in the bill is animated Oscar winner Inside Out, cult hit of 2015 Birdman, romantic drama Brooklyn, iconic road movie Thelma and Louise, tear jerker The Artist, all-time rom-com classic Philadelphia Story and action adventure Jurassic World.
Alex Clifton, Artistic Director of Storyhouse said: “Moonlight Flicks has quickly established itself as a firm favourite in the borough’s summer event calendar. It’s one of those wonderful events that welcomes a real cross section of audiences; families, groups of friends, couples and film buffs. We’re very much looking forward to welcoming movie-goers to the charming Roman Garden once again.”
As in previous years Moonlight Flick’s will use wireless headphones to ensure maximum sound quality. Based on last year’s successful season it is expected that over 5000 people will attend the popular outdoor cinema.
