Kurt Vonnegut documentary to open at Cinema Art Theater Nov. 26

November 24, 2021

The Rehoboth Beach Film Society’s Cinema Art Theater, starting Friday, Nov. 26, will present “Kurt Vonnegut: Unstuck in Time,” a compelling documentary that examines the life and work of the beloved American author and his long friendship with the filmmaker who documents it.

The first of its kind on Vonnegut, this film is a deep, immersive dive into the author's upbringing and his creative output. The film began 39 years ago when young, struggling filmmaker Robert Weide of “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and “Lenny Bruce: Swear to Tell the Truth” wrote a letter to his literary idol proposing a documentary on Vonnegut's life and work.

Shooting began in 1988, and the resulting film reflects the relationship and bond that Weide and Vonnegut formed over the decades. Past, present and future cease to become linear as Weide strives to get an overview of his subject's life and his own role in it, which extends far beyond the printed page.

Admission is $8 for members and $11 for nonmembers. For screening times and to purchase tickets, go to
