Dead Calm, Nicole Kidman, Sam Neill (Australia, 1989, 97 min) in Private Theater

  • Feb 17, 2013 · 4:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This intense movie brought Nicole Kidman to Hollywood's attention.

Watching the film, the audience becomes "acutely aware that help is not going to arrive from anywhere, that the built-in protections of civilization are irrelevant and that the characters will have to settle their own destinies"--Roger Ebert.

Dir. Philip Noyce, director of the Harrison Ford 'Jack Ryan' films "Patriot Games" and "A Clear and Present Danger"; and the acclaimed film "Rabbit Proof Fence."


"Grieving over the death of their son, a married couple decide to take a long yachting trip for relaxation's sake. Their journey takes a dark turn, however, when they rescue a young man and find themselves in a battle of wits against this violent sociopath.

Interestingly, a previous attempt had been made at adapting the novel that inspired this film by none other than Orson Welles; footage from his unfinished version, known as "The Deep," can be seen in the documentary Orson Welles: The One-Man Band."~ Judd Blaise, Rovi

Meeting Place; both the building and theater are wheelchair accessible: We are going to meet in new private theater downtown to which Jane has access (seats up to about 15, projector, stadium style seating).


Parking is available across the street in the Main Public Library parking lot on 6th Ave No., a half block down from intersection of 6Th & Church.
Parking also might be available on 5th or 6th but the library is a sure thing!

*****Anyone taking MTA , to come downtown, take #7; it stops at Church & 9th Ave. No. (after Lifeway announcement) or main station about 3 short blocks away; and going home, the #7 stops about 2 blocks up on 6th Ave. No. The #3 also stops at the main station if you are coming downtown; and right across the street on 6th Ave. going back towards West End. *****

Jane will be in the lobby to greet you or you can buzz the concierge. Her cell number is [masked] in case you need directions.

***Coffee and conversation in the very cozy lounge before the movie.****

Derek's Additional Directions:

If this will be your first visit, the most important thing is plan to arrive at least 15 minutes early and give yourself plenty of time to find a parking space (I recommend the library too) and find the building. Also, print these directions or be able to access them from your phone.

The Private Theater is in The Cumberland at 555 Church Street at the corner of 6th and Church. On the other corner of 6th and Church on the same side of the street is the Nashville Public Library. On the other side of The Cumberland is a UPS Store, then Quizno's Subs, then McKendree United Methodist Church at 523 Church. Subway is directly across the street from The Cumberland facing it.

You go through 2 sets of double doors when entering The Cumberland. The 2nd set of double doors is straight ahead. You can Press 6# for the Concierge Desk for either set of doors that are usually locked.

After going through the 2nd set of double doors, walk straight ahead until you can't walk further. You will pass the Club room/lounge on your right where everyone may be if you arrive early enough.

If you don't see them, then turn to your left where the hall dead ends at the[masked] sign. Then, at the Storage Room door sign - go to your right. You will pass the exercise room. You'll see the Media Center door straight ahead. That's it. Go through that door and then you'll go through another door that says Media Center. There are also restrooms there. Again, print these directions or be able to access them if you are going for the first time. Thanks and have a great time!

    The suspense certainly kept me at the edge of my seat, during most of the film.
