Dec 14 @ 1:00 pm

Celebrate the 40th Anniversary of THE JERK by Steve Martin in association with Belfast Film Festival

Just who is Navin R Johnson? He (Steve Martin) was born a poor black child, rises to become a gas station attendant, a ‘random bastard’, owner of a hero dog called Lifesaver, then inventor of the ‘Opti-grab’, a revolutionary device to aid the donning and removal of spectacles. Even with great wealth and taste, Navin is still The Jerk.

Released 40 years ago this year, The Jerk still remains one of the funniest films ever made, certainly one of Steve Martin and director Carl Reiner’s. Its mix of slapstick, absurdist humour and Martin’s performance as the naive and hapless Navin is irresistible. This afternoon screening will be a welcome tonic from Xmas movies. And xmas shopping.
