Roxie Theater: Dune in widescreen 35mm
July 6, 2019 @ 9:00 pm - 11:30 pm
MiDNiTES FOR MANiACS presents a 35th-anniversary 35mm widescreen showing of David Lynch’s DUNE: Theatrical Version (1984)!
With Kyle MacLachlan, Virginia Madsen, Everett McGill, Jack Nance, Jürgen Prochnow, Patrick Stewart, Sting, Dean Stockwell, Max von Sydow, Alicia Witt, Sean Young, Brad Dourif, José Ferrer
MiDNiTES FOR MANiACS is proud to present a glorious 35mm print of David Lynch’s underrated and surreal adaptation of Frank Herbert’s 1965 sci-fi novel. Implementing his experimental techniques and character actors familiar from his other work including ERASERHEAD, THE ELEPHANT MAN, BLUE VELVET, and TWIN PEAKS, Lynch’s big-budget constellation genuinely glistens with a hypnotic spice.
July 4th is the perfect day to reevaluate this infamous science-fiction debacle (adaptations of which also famously were attempted by Alejandro Jodorowsky and Ridley Scott), especially with Denis Villeneuve (BLADE RUNNER 2049) remaking it, as we speak, for a 2020 release.
Directed by David Lynch. 136 minutes. USA. 35mm print courtesy of Universal.
