You may have heard that Bill Murray is going to be in town, performing at Stromness Town Hall with his show NEW WORLDS on SUN 17 JUNE.

Well we couldn’t miss out on the chance, so we’ve got special dispensation, pre-release, to show his latest film ISLE OF DOGS.

We like to think of the weekend as a DOUBLE BILL!

The beautifully animated Isle of Dogs finds Wes Anderson at his detail-oriented best while telling one of the director’s most winsomely charming stories.

An outbreak of canine flu in Japan leads all dogs to be quarantined on an island. A boy (voice of Koyu Rankin) journeys there to rescue his dog Spots (Liev Schreiber), and gets help from a pack of misfit canines who have also been exiled. His quest inspires a group of dog lovers to expose a government conspiracy. The voice cast also includes Bryan Cranston, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Scarlett Johansson, Tilda Swinton, Bob Balaban, Greta Gerwig, and Yoko Ono.
