The Phantom of the Open
ShowtimesAugust 21:5:00 pm, 7:10 pm
Starring Sally Hawkins and Mark Rylance, Phantom tells the heartwarming true story of Maurice Flitcroft (Mark Rylance), a dreamer and unrelenting optimist. This humble crane operator from Barrow-in-Furness managed to gain entry to The British Open Golf Championship qualifying in 1976, despite never playing a round of golf before. He shot the worst round in Open history and drew the ire of the golfing elite, but became a folk hero in the process and, more importantly, showed his family the importance of pursuing your dreams.–Rotten Tomatoes
“A biopic of a refreshingly under-told story of an amateur player that let nothing stop him from etching his name into golf history.”–Chicago Reader
“A unique character study that champions the simple, satisfying idea of having fun in life.”–AV Club
