Moonrise Kingdom (US) was the opening night film of the 2012 Cannes Film Festival.

Set on an island off the coast of New England in the summer of 1965, it tells the story of two 12-year-olds who fall in love, make a secret pact, and run away together into the wilderness. As various authorities try to hunt them down, a violent storm is brewing off-shore—and the peaceful island community is turned upside down in more ways than anyone can handle.

The star studded cast includes Bill Murray, Frances McDormand, Harvey Keitel, Burce Willis, Edward Norton and Tilda Swinton.

Catch it on Monday, September 10 at 7 p.m. at the Vogue Theatre.

Tickets: Available at the door and online, members: $9/adult; $8/youth, standard: $10/adult; $9/youth
