Lynch/Oz at the Strand



Saturday, August 12 at 7 PM

Strand Theatre


The themes, images, and cultural vernacular of Victor Fleming’s The Wizard of Oz continue to haunt David Lynch’s art and filmography—from his very first short, The Alphabet, to his latest series, Twin Peaks: The Return. 

 Arguably, no filmmaker has so consistently drawn inspiration—consciously or unconsciously—from a single work. Is David Lynch trapped in the land of Oz? If so, can we derive a new appreciation for Lynch’s body of work from taking a closer look at how it intersects and communicates with The Wizard of Oz? In turn, do Mulholland Drive, Lost Highway, or The Elephant Man have something to say about the enduring resonance of one of America’s most beloved classic movies? 

Through six distinct perspectives and narrated by some of contemporary cinema’s most exciting voices, LYNCH/OZ will take us down the proverbial rabbit hole, help us re-experience and re-interpret The Wizard of Oz by way of David Lynch, to deliver a whole new appreciation for Lynch’s symbolism through the lens of his greatest influence.

 Tickets are $9 in advance at Highway 61 Coffeehouse and $10 at the door.

And there's free popcorn. There's no place like home...

7 PM

Strand Theatre

If you love movies...Cinema Paradiso

Which is more important: what's on the screen or what's happening in every corner of the theater? Either way, for some it's paradise.
A prominent movie director returns to his Sicilian home village for the first time in many years to attend the funeral of the town's former film projectionist, who served as the filmmaker's mentor when he was a young boy.
Los Angeles TimesMichael Wilmington: "It's a shining valentine to the movies--full of homages, collages and swooningly romantic Ennio Morricone music--and it gets right at the messy, impure, wondrous way they capture and enrapture us..."
With an ending to touch any lover of films.
Advance Tickets $9 available at Highway 61 Coffeehouse, $10 at the door.
And proof that there really is a Cinema Paradiso: FREE POPCORN!
