CAST: Tom Hiddleston, Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller, Elizabeth Moss DIRECTOR: Ben Wheatley WEIRD ELEPHANT SERIES

HIGH-RISE stars Hiddleston as Dr. Robert Laing, the newest resident of a luxurious apartment in a high-tech concrete skyscraper whose lofty location places him amongst the upper class. Life seems like paradise to the solitude-seeking Laing. But as power outages become more frequent and building flaws emerge, particularly on the lower floors, the regimented social strata begins to crumble and the building becomes a battlefield in a literal class war.

Craft Beer

Engine House No. 9 will be serving up craft beer for purchase in theater at both shows. 

This "High-Rise" is a scathing, intoxicating visual and auditory experience, the most truthful and most powerful Ballard adaptation we've ever seen, or are likely to.
Andrew O'Hehir,
A tour-de-force of visceral imagery and subtext, High-Rise is pulverizing, powerful, and brazenly idiosyncratic, in a style that's gloriously rare, especially for modern cinema.
