Genius Month: Rain Man Screening
January 28 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm£15
This January TT Cinema is bringing you a lineup of genius themed movies. Our cellar bar has produced a brand new menu celebrating the greatest inventors, engineers, scientists and genius musicians so we’re screening some films to go along side.
Continuing our run of genius related movies we’re screening Rain Man. Charlie Babbitt (Tom Cruise) discovers that his estranged father has left his entire estate to his brother Reymond Babbitt (Dustin Hoffman). Charlie, not knowing he even has a brother, travels to Cincinnati to settle the matter.
Reymond, who is autistic, resides in a mental institution that has control over the money their father has left them. Aiming to get his hands on the cash, Charlie convinces Raymond to leave the institution. Having concocted a plan to take custody of his brother they begin traveling to LA. Raymond refuses to fly so they have to drive, all the time having to stop as he insists on his normal routine.
During the drive, Charlie learns of Raymond’s ability to count and remember large amounts of numbers. Knowing he is in debt and needing to pay off his debts, Charlie and Reymond go to Las Vegas and hit the casinos. Using his brother’s abilities to count cards, Charlie soon makes enough money to pay back his loans. Suspicions, the casino owners ask them to leave.
Once back in Las Vegas, Raymond has to decide whether to go back to the institution or stay with his brother. Join us for this tale of brotherly love and redemption.
