Moulin Rouge! (2001)

The Regal presents Moulin Rouge! as the seventh installation of our Musical Monday monthly series.

Ewan McGregor and Nicola Kidman star in this vibrant, Parisian tale of a young Englishman (McGregor) who becomes infatuated with Satine (Kidman), a singer at the Moulin Rouge.

Satine has been promised by the manager to a Duke in return for funding his next production. As the young lovers meet in secret and Satine’s wedding day draws closer she continues to hide a fatal secret from both Christian and the Duke.

Moulin Rouge! was nominated for eight Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Actress for Nicole Kidman. The film won Best Art Direction and Best Costume Design. It was the first musical nominated for Best Picture in 10 years!

“A breathtaking baroque film that marries the best of theatre, opera and cinematic technique” – EMPIRE ★★★★★
