Description

FRIDAY JULY 12 DOUBLE FEATURE

THE DOORS: THE FINAL CUT 7:00 4K RESTORATION WITH NEW 5.1 SOUND MIX
Oliver Stone's justifiably excessive musical portrait charts Jim Morrison's turbulent relationship with his muse Pamela Courson, the formation of The Doors in Los Angeles, his experimentation with hallucinogens and the occult, and his tragic death at the age of 27 in Paris. Embodying the hedonistic chaos of the late '60s, Val Kilmer gives a blazing performance as the enigmatic and magnetic Morrison. Meg Ryan, Kyle MacLachlan, Kevin Dillon, Frank Whaley, Kathleen Quinlan, and over twenty-five songs from The Doors' catalogue co-star. (1991, 138 min, 4K DCP ‘Scope)

+ FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS 9:30
After decades in development, director Terry Gilliam rose to the challenge of bringing Hunter S. Thompson’s notorious tome to the screen. He successfully captures the chaotic, hallucinatory nature of Raoul Duke and Dr. Gonzo’s crazed decent, with Johnny Depp and Benicio Del Toro delivering dead-on characterizations of the terrible two. (1998, 118 min, 35mm ‘Scope)
