About the Film:
Directed by David Lynch. USA. 1992. 134 min.
Showtime’s reboot of David Lynch’s game-changing TV series Twin Peaks starts May 21. In the meantime, celebrate the 25th anniversary of Twin Peaks with a special one-time screening of Lynch's divise prequel Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me. The film follows the last seven days in the life of Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee), whose plastic-wrapped corpse, found floating in a river, was the fulcrum for the television series. While projecting the image of a popular top honors student to the general population of Twin Peaks, Laura lives a secret life of drug abuse and sexual addiction to cope with the years of abuse at the hand of her father, Leland (Ray Wise), and his alter-ego Bob (Frank Silva). The fabulous soundtrack by Angelo Badalamenti has just been rereleased on vinyl.
Agent Cooper's delight: Pie, donuts, and coffee will be available for purchase to complete the viewing experience.
