Take a deep dive into the wondrous cinematic worlds of Wes Anderson — symmetry, quirkiness, pastel cinematography and all. From Sunday, 17 January to Sunday, 28 February, Embassy Theatre is falling head over heels for the acclaimed director's work.

Film buffs can enjoy Anderson's distinctive visual stylings, compelling soundtracks and all-star casts, with the Kent Terrace venue playing seven different flicks across the retrospective fest. First up, catch the Jason Schwartzman-led hit Rushmore, followed by the family dramas of The Royal Tenenbaums and the stop-motion animation delight that is Fantastic Mr Fox.

Also on the bill: The Darjeeling Limited (which'll help you vicariously indulge your wanderlust), The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou (if you feeling like wearing matching tracksuits with your movie date) and Isle of Dogs (because no one does animated canines like Anderson) — plus the exceptionally cast The Grand Budapest Hotel as well.

Fingers crossed that 2021 is the year we all finally get to see Anderson's latest, the pandemic-delayed The French Dispatch, too.
