To kick-off our 26th season of Gallery Night at the Movies, we present the crowd-pleasing sports comedy based on the true story of Maurice Flitcroft, The Phantom of the Open, with screenings at 1pm, 4pm and 7pm September 12 at Galaxy Cinemas.

When a working-class man named Maurice Flitcroft (Oscar-winner Mark Rylance, Dunkirk, Bridge of Spies) decides to follow his dreams of becoming a golfer, no one believes him when he says he’ll make it to the British Open. In 1976, he did just that and proceeded to golf the worst recorded score in professional golf history. What follows is a story about eternal optimism, pursuing your dreams, and the unflinching support families give to one another. Academy Award-winner and Film Circuit favourite Sally Hawkins (Maudie, The Shape of Water, Spencer) gives a heartrending performance as Jean Flitcroft, Maurice’s wife and biggest exponent. This story about a man-turned–cult legend will inspire you as much as it’ll make your cheeks hurt from smiling.

The Phantom of the Open had its World Premiere at the BFI London Film Festival.
Run time 106 minutes.

“Despite its light subject matter, [The Phantom of the Open] is about something more than an obscure British folk hero (although it is also that). It’s a story about following your passion, not because of the heights this path will take you to, but because it makes you happy.” - Michael O’Sullivan, Washington Post Trailer for Phantom of the Open
