Only Lovers Left Alive

Buy Tickets


Double Feature with SNOWPIERCER (1:15, 6:30)

(2013) dir Jim Jarmusch w/Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska, Anton Yelchin, John Hurt, Jeffrey Wright [123 min; 35mm]
A never-aging, androgynous, hyper-cultured vampire seems like the perfect role for Swinton (second only perhaps to ORLANDO) and that’s exactly what she plays in Jarmusch’s exquisite rumination on life, art, and creation.

“There is a serious voodoo swirling around in [Only Lovers Left Alive] that you will not find anywhere else in any other vampire movie. That power will stick with you long after the lights go up.” – Chris Alexander, Fangoria

“Some films are so deeply cool, you feel cool by association just basking in their flickering glow.” – Emily Rems, Bust Magazine

“Jarmusch brings his arthouse sensibilities to the vampire genre, removing the focus from needless stereotypes and finding the humanity in the inhuman.” – Britt Hayes, ScreenCrush
