The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada

Directed by Tommy Lee Jones

With a time-shifting screenplay by Guillermo Arriaga (writer of AMORES PERROS), Jones’ directorial début is a politically charged, Peckinpah-tinged Western set in the Tex-Mex borderlands. Ranch foreman Pete kidnaps the man responsible for the murder of his best friend, and the two make a long and dangerous trek south to bring Estrada’s body home. Veteran British cinematographer Chris Menges turns the stunning landscapes into an equally important character.


We are pleased to welcome Cannes 2005-winning screenwriter Guillermo Arriaga, on Wednesday 12 April at the 19.50 screening.

Tickets: £6 full / £4.50 concs. All other screenings of THE THREE BURIALS OF MELQUIADES ESTRADA will be at normal ticket prices.
