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

Director Tony Scott and screenwriter Quentin Tarantino collaborate for a characteristically over-the-top, stylishly haywire crime romance, following the explosive marriage of comic store clerk Clarence (Christian Slater) and prostitute Alabama (Patricia Arquette), who inherit a suitcase of cocaine on their wedding day. When the couple tries to sell the drugs, a slew of Hollywood’s hardest and most flamboyant gangsters (including Christopher Walken, James Gandolfini and Gary Oldham) starts gunning for the star-crossed lovers. With an estimable and delightfully tweaked-out supporting cast headed by Dennis Hopper, Val Kilmer, Brad Pitt and Samuel L. Jackson.

Directed by Tony Scott. 1993. USA. 121 min. 35mm print courtesy of Morgan Creek Productions.

TRUE ROMANCE (9:00pm) will be preceded by ALONG FOR THE RIDE at 7pm. See either for $12 or both for $15.


ALONG FOR THE RIDE (7pm)

“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).

Directed by Nick Ebeling. Produced by Nina Yang Bongiovi and Sheri Timmons. 2016. 94 min. DCP.
