ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE w/ Tilda Swinton live!

  • Academy @ LACMA Bing Theater 5905 Wilshire Boulevard

The capstone in a series of five Jarmusch titles chosen for a retrospective programmed by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, this sneak preview screening of his newest film ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE precedes its theatrical release by more than a month. It's already quite a treat to be among the first to see it (outside of the festival circuit), but the bonus aspect of this show is that actress Tilda Swinton will appear in person for a post-show Q&A about the film, her performance, and (hopefully!) when she will star in a David Bowie biopic. A boy can dream. Personally, I'd love to chat with Swinton about her work with Derek Jarman and Christoph Schlingensief, but I doubt the conversation will yield to such topics. A boy continues to dream, I suppose. But really, there's no reason not to attend this event. It's a sneak preview of a brand new picture, one of its stars will be in attendance, and - oh yeah - it's only five bucks. - SBP
