Ticket prices: Free admission after paying membership fee to Cine Club
The Tambour Theater at the Université de Rennes 2 has agreed to set sail, yet again, on board the Court Métrange vessel for an evening of feature-lengths focused on phantoms and ocean legends. Rest assured, you won’t be doomed to sail and haunt the briny deeps like those you will be meeting throughout the evening, but rather sirendipitously called to sink back into two (2) resplendent productions from the 50s.
