Contraband Cinema: "Roar" at Zoo Atlanta

  • Zoo Atlanta 800 Cherokee Ave SE Atlanta, GA, 30308 United States (map)

Contraband Cinema partners with the Atlanta Film Festival to present "Roar," a special screening event taking place at Zoo Atlanta!


Directed by Noel Marshall
USA, 1981, English, 102 minutes

No animals were harmed in the making of this movie. 70 members of the cast and crew were. An unprecedented—and wholly unpredictable—action-adventure, "Roar" follows wildlife preservationist Hank ("The Exorcist" producer Noel Marshall in his sole and career-derailing turn as an actor and director), who lives harmoniously alongside a menagerie of over 100 untamed animals, including cheetahs, elephants, lions and tigers on a preservation in the African plains. When his wife and children arrive (real-life wife Tippi Hedren, "The Birds," and step-daughter Melanie Griffith, "Working Girl," and his sons John and Jerry Marshall) for a visit, a long-brewing battle for dominance between the lions erupts and threatens their very lives.

In addition to the film presentation, attendees will have access to the Zoo’s live animal encounters, refreshments, prizes, and a "Roar" photo contest.
