Local Hero (12A)

Drama Cinema, New Cinema

Join us for the 40th anniversary of this true classic!

Knox Oil and Gas of Houston is far removed from the North Sea oil it desires –and the sleepy Scottish seaside village it wants to buy and replace with a refinery. So Knox sends its ace dealmaker (Peter Riegert) to negotiate. He finds cheerful future millionaires, awesome northern lights, a lusty innkeeper, a stubborn beachcomber and a mermaid with webbed toes.

Forsyth’s touch is perfect: whether showing us a tycoon (Burt Lancaster) with his head in the stars or bridging generations at an all-night ceilidh dance.
