STAMFORD, Conn. -- The Avon Theatre will present a Cult Classics screening of "The Royal Tenenbaums" (2002), directed by Wes Anderson, on Tuesday, Aug. 25, at 8:30 p.m.

Royal Tenenbaum (Gene Hackman) and his wife, Etheline (Anjelica Huston), had three children — Chas, Margot and Richie — and then they separated. Chas (Ben Stiller) started buying real estate in his early teens and seemed to have an almost preternatural understanding of international finance.

Margot (Gwyneth Paltrow) was a playwright and received a Braverman Grant of $50,000 in the ninth grade. Richie (Luke Wilson) was a junior champion tennis player and won the U.S. Nationals three years in a row.

Virtually all memory of the brilliance of the young Tenenbaums was subsequently erased by two decades of betrayal, failure and disaster. 

"The Royal Tenenbaums" is a stylized study of melancholy and redemption from Wes Anderson.

Ticket prices are as follows: Carte Blanche members: free; members, $7; students and seniors, $9; nonmembers, $12. To purchase tickets visit or the box office.

The Avon Theatre is a member-supported, nonprofit cultural hub, dedicated to presenting film in its highest form and thriving because of the support of patrons and the community. The theater is at 272 Bedford St., Stamford.
