SYNOPSIS

The Day of the Dolphin will screen from an imported 35mm print.

Possessor of potentially the most intriguing poster tagline of the 1970s - "Unwittingly, he trained a dolphin to kill the President of the United States" - Mike Nichols' The Day of the Dolphin is a  fascinating, politically-driven sci-fi thriller about a marine biologist Jake Terrell (George C Scott) who has been training dolphins to communicate with humans. His work, however, is dramatically subverted when a sinister organisation abduct some of his subjects and put them to nefarious use.
