(5.5) All systems go at the Cable Car! And perfect weather for slouching alone in the dark with a coffee and danish, watching David Lynch’s creepy ‘Blue Velvet.’ Or go with a bunch of friends!
Isabella Rossellini, Kyle MacLachlan, Dennis Hopper, and Laura Dern are residents of Lumberton where a severed human ear is found in a field. The ear leads a young man on an investigation related to a mysterious nightclub singer and a group of criminals who have kidnapped her child. The Guardian recently ran a piece about the initial reaction to the film.
David Lynch’s films have rarely fared well at test screenings, and Blue Velvet triggered some of the worst early reactions of his career. One response card read: “David Lynch should be shot.”
8:30pm, through Thursday May 5, Blue Velvet, Cable Car Cinema, 204 South Main Street, 401.272.3970
