FILM A Star is Born (2018)

The BIG Screen Cinema Experience

Friday 04 December 2020

Congress Theatre

Opening our December Cinema season, this 2018 award winning emotional remake stars Bradley Cooper (also in his directional debut) and Lady Gaga in her first big-screen starring role.

Jackson Maine (Cooper) is a fading country rock musician who discovers – and falls in love with – struggling artist Ally (Gaga). Maine’s life of self-destruction is momentarily given purpose as he coaxes Ally into the spotlight but is their path entwined or just meant to cross as the two watch her music career take off?

Described as outrageously watchable, this is a film that is meant to be seen on the big screen.
