The Athena Cinema presents a fall film series featuring films directed by David Lynch. This mini-retrospective is a rare opportunity to see these cult favorites on a big screen with big sound — a wholly cinematic experience that small screens simply cannot equal.

A cinematic auteur of the first rank, Lynch has garnered international praise and multiple awards for films such as Elephant ManBlue Velvet and Mulholland Drive. Lynch’s television series Twin Peaks enjoys status as both a critically acclaimed series and a die-hard cult classic since it first aired in 1990. Lynch’s films are filled with surreal, often absurd circumstances with some of the most memorable characters in the history of film: Merrick from Eraserhead, the psychopath Frank Booth in Blue Velvet, or Agent Dale Cooper in Twin Peaks. As Lynch puts it himself, “This whole world is wild at heart and weird on top.”
