Rare screening of archival 35mm print

Dir. David Lynch. 1977, 85 mins. 35mm. Courtesy of Asymmetrical Productions. With Jack Nance, Charlotte Stewart, Allen Joseph. A surrealist horror film, an urban-decay nightmare, an expressionistic mind-melt, and a pitch-black comedy, Eraserhead is David Lynch’s astonishing debut film, a nightmarish movie about a zombielike loner. Beautifully filmed in black-and-white, it is filled with astonishing sights—and sounds, from the dirge of Fats Waller organ music to the haunting sound design by Alan Splet. A rare chance to see this unforgettable movie in 35mm.
