Bromley filmgoers have the chance to see an Oscar-nominated cult classic complete with a live score performed by a string-quartet this month.

In a world-first, Bromley Picturehouse will be screening Yorgos Lanthimos' The Lobster, accompanied by the award-winning Solem Quartet playing the almost exclusively classical soundtrack.

The twisted black comedy envisions a dystopian society that cannot tolerate single adults, forcing them to find suitable partners in a remote country-hotel facility.

Should they fail to do so, the will be transformed into an animal of their choice and released into the wild.

The Solem Quartet said: “In performing The Lobster with live score (part of our Solem Lates series) we invite people in to enjoy live classical music in a setting that harks back to the earliest days of cinema.

"The film utilises the string quartet repertoire we love - Beethoven, Shostakovich and Schnittke among others - and creates a fascinating musical world of eeriness, threat and unexpected tenderness sure to add a whole new dimension to what’s already an incredible film!”

Formed in 2011, the Solem Quartet regularly perform at venues across the UK and internationally.

Though primarily focusing on the core classical repertoire, the quartet are challenging a new generation of audiences with their series of events.

The Bromley screening takes place Wednesday November 13 at 8pm.
