Dune

Triple Feature with FLASH GORDON (2:45, 9:45) and BARBARELLA (5:00)

1984 • dir David Lynch w/Kyle MacLachlan, Virginia Madsen, Sting, Brad Dourif, Patrick Stewart, Max von Sydow, Dean Stockwell, Kenneth McMillan, Alicia Witt, Jack Nance • 137 min • 35mm

This ill-fated production was meant to be the next Star Wars but the dense nature of the source material and David Lynch’s idiosyncratic vision made that an impossibility. Instead, this ungainly but beautifully weird sci-fi epic has become a cult classic.

Staff Pick!
Casey: “Worth it just to see the royal pug and Sting in a winged leather speedo.”
Cal: “Crazy. Bad. Weird. Great. Sting. Worms. It’s Dune!”

“Dune was like the anti-Star Wars, undoing everything Lucas’s trilogy did to make sci-fi a friendly place.”
– Daniel D. Snyder, The Atlantic
