A rare chance to see one of the most romantic sci-fi movies of all time on the big screen – on Valentine’s Day, as part of the Hebridean Dark Skies Festival.
Jeff Bridges was nominated for an Oscar and a Golden Globe for his touching performance as an alien who needs help from Jenny, a recently widowed Wisconsin woman (winningly portrayed by Raiders of the Lost Ark star Karen Allen) after his spaceship crashes. Already reeling from the loss of her husband, Jenny then has to cope with the sudden appearance of an alien who looks exactly like him (after using his DNA to take human form), but she agrees to help the Starman escape the authorities who are fast closing in. Then, as the pair race to the spaceship rendezvous point in Arizona, an unlikely and magical romance blossoms….
Before the film there will be a Valentine’s Day menu available at the An Lanntair cafe bar.
