Licorice Pizza 15
From the archive
This film was last shown on 10 February 2022
Written and directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, Licorice Pizza is the story of Alana Kane and Gary Valentine growing up and falling in love in California’s San Fernando Valley in 1973.
The film marks the big-screen debuts of its two lead performers, Alana Haim (who has worked with Anderson before in several music videos) and Cooper Hoffmann, the son of the late celebrated actor, Philip Seymour Hoffman. Over the summer of ’73, the pair navigate the changing political and social landscape, with their journey leading them to multiple interactions with figures of both old and new Hollywood.
The film was shot using 1970s camera processes and lenses to achieve the right look, so the Showroom is delighted to be showing Licorice Pizza on 35mm.
PLEASE NOTE: Licorice Pizza is now showing on 35mm on Friday, Saturday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. On Sunday and Monday it will be presented digitally (DCP).
From Fri 4 Feb all showings will be on DCP.
Both screenings on Monday will now be available with subtitles.
