Part of ALONG FOR THE RIDE: A TRIBUTE TO DENNIS HOPPER

Squeaky-clean suburbanite Jeffrey (Kyle MacLachlan) gets a crash course in the dark side of life when he stumbles upon a severed ear in a field near his home. Before his amateur investigation is over he encounters kidnapping, murder, sexual assault, Isabella Rossellini as a tormented torch singer and Dennis Hopper as one of the scariest villains in film history. Director David Lynch combines Hitchcockian suspense, surrealist imagery and a Hardy Boys plot to create a one-of-a-kind Grimm’s fairy tale for adults. Laura Dern and Dean Stockwell costar.

Written and directed by David Lynch. With Kyle MacLachlan, Isabella Rossellini, Dennis Hopper, Laura Dern, Dean Stockwell. 1986. USA. 120 min. 35mm print courtesy of Park Circus.

BLUE VELVET (9:30pm) will be preceded by ALONG FOR THE RIDE (w/ Q&A with director Nick Ebeling) at 7pm. See either for $12 or both for $15.


ALONG FOR THE RIDE (7pm)

Director Nick Ebeling IN PERSON for Q&A after the screening

“Along for the Ride” explores the highs, lows and ultimately – the phoenix like ascension of iconic Hollywood maverick Dennis Hopper – all as seen through the eyes of his mysterious longtime “right-hand man” – Satya de la Manitou. Filmmaker NICK EBELING chronicles the unlikely duo’s incredible 40+ year journey, an enduring and intense brotherhood, as intimately complex as Hopper’s own legendary career. De la Manitou re-examines his dedication to his friend’s idiosyncratic and uncompromising genius, reminiscing with a fascinating cast of characters – Hopper’s co-conspirators, family and friends – all those that were also – unwittingly or willingly – ALONG FOR THE RIDE. The result…is one hell of a trip. Original Score by Gemma Thompson of Savages. “Along for the Ride” also features rare and unseen photos and vintage film.

Featuring among others Satya de la Manitou, David Hopper, Paul Lewis (Easy Rider Production Manager), Michael Gruskoff (The Last Movie producer), Wim Wenders (The American Friend, Palermo Shooting director), Frank Gehry, David Lynch (Blue Velvet director), Fred Caruso (Blue Velvet producer), actors and friends Russ Tamblyn and Dean Stockwell, The Last Movie actresses Stella Garcia and Julie Adams, Samantha Fuller, Lawrence Schiller (The American Dreamer producer), Tony Shafrazi (Shafrazi Art Gallery owner), Ed Ruscha (artist), Christa Lang-Fuller, Julian Schnabel (artist, filmmaker, friend) and Damon Albarn ( Gorillaz singer, songwriter).
