ROCKERS ON THE BIG SCREEN
David Bowie Birthday Salute! Double Feature!
THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH / THE HUNGER
35 mm!
40th Anniversary!

THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH
1976, Rialto Pictures, 139 min, UK, Dir: Nicolas Roeg

This stylish cult favorite stars rocker David Bowie (in his feature debut) as the exotic and mysterious Thomas Jerome Newton - an extraterrestrial hoping to save his drought-ravaged planet. With his advanced technology, Newton easily amasses wealth and power, but he has considerably more trouble dealing with human desires and fears. Enigmatic and beautiful, this is one of the most distinctive sci-fi films of the 1970s. Costarring Rip Torn, Candy Clark and Buck Henry.


THE HUNGER
1983, Warner Bros., 97 min, USA, Dir: Tony Scott

Twenty years before anyone had ever heard of TWILIGHT, director Tony Scott was bringing impossibly glamorous bloodsuckers to the big screen. Catherine Deneuve and David Bowie star as a pair of upscale New York vampires who draw geriatrics researcher Susan Sarandon into their circle when age begins to catch up with one of them. “I must say, there's nothing that looks like it on the market,” remarked Bowie on release, and the film's rich sense of atmosphere inspired a cult following and a TV series. Watch closely for a performance by goth music icons Bauhaus, and one of Willem Dafoe's first movie roles.
