(USA/1986—directed by David Lynch)
 

Behind the tranquil, white picket fences of the all-American town of Lumberton, strange mysteries begin to unravel when college student Jeffrey Beaumont (Kyle MacLachlan) reaches down to pick up an unexpected discovery in the grass. David Lynch’s surreal, sensual, darkly comic, deeply disturbing breakthrough film remains one of the cinema’s great visionary works, looking and sounding better than ever in this director-supervised 2K digital restoration. With Laura Dern, Dean Stockwell, Isabella Rossellini, Brad Dourif and a mind-blowing Dennis Hopper as Frank. (120 minutes)

“Brilliant and unsettling. The work of an all-American visionary.” -Stephen Schiff, Vanity Fair

Note: Inland Empire, originally scheduled for this date, is currently unavailable and will be presented in the future.
