Roadrunner: A Film About Anthony Bourdain

4 PM | The Cary Theater | Get Tickets

In this 2-hour, Rated R documentary, get a look into the life of chef, writer, adventurer, provocateur: Anthony Bourdain. Roadrunner: A Film About Anthony Bourdain is an intimate, behind-the-scenes look at how an anonymous chef became a world-renowned cultural icon.

From Academy Award-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville (20 Feet From Stardom, Won’t You Be My Neighbor?), this unflinching look at Bourdain reverberates with his presence, in his own voice and in the way he indelibly impacted the world around him. Other showings earlier in the weekend include Friday, January 28 at 5 PM and Saturday, January 29 at 5 PM.
