Which UK cinemas are showing Marriage Story?
James R | On 15, Nov 2019
This weekend sees the release of one of the best films of the year: Noah Baumbach’s Marriage Story.
Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver star in the movie, which chronicles the breakdown of a relationship in raw, hilarious, heartfelt detail. Written and directed by The Squid and the Whale and Frances Ha helmer, it is shot through with quips, barbs, wry observations and dramatic threats, with a top-notch cast that also includes Laura Dern, Alan Alda and Ray Liotta as a trio of cut-throat (and not-so-cut-throat) lawyers.
“This remarkable, heartfelt masterpiece about divorce aches with comedy and compassion,” we wrote in our review.
The film, which is Baumbach’s second movie for Netflix, following The Meyerowitz Stories, premiered at the Venice Film Festival this summer, and now, arrives in select UK cinemas after its UK debut at the London Film Festival.
Netflix, however, is still surrounded by controversy within the industry, with major exhibitors refusing to screen its titles, because the streaming giant typically releases movies day-and-date worldwide or with a much shorter theatrical window than the conventional 12 weeks. The streaming giant has, though, increasingly begun releasing movies in cinemas with a brief exclusive window. In the UK, that has typically been through a partnership with Curzon Cinemas and a handful of other venues, including Scotland’s Glasgow Film Theatre and Edinburgh Filmhouse – more than a dozen other indie cinemas recently petitioned for Netflix to work with them too. (At present, Vue, Cineworld and Odeon will not show Netflix films.)
Marriage Story joins The Irishman in having a three-week window in cinemas, before streaming worldwide from 6th December.
When many regional cinemas aren’t screening it until 22nd November, with the opening weekend focused on London, the wide reach is a welcome move in the right direction. Here’s the list of where you can watch it on the big screen in the UK, which we’ll keep updated with additional screenings as we confirm them.
