Description

**Double Feature!** LABYRINTH Jim Henson, George Lucas and Monty Python’s Terry Jones joined forces for this fable about a young girl (Jennifer Connelly) who is given 13 hours to reach the center of an enormous, otherworldly maze and rescue her baby brother from the Goblin King (David Bowie). Numerous bizarre characters are encountered as she makes her way through the King’s maze, with its ruler appearing regularly and providing the occasional toe-tapping tune. Bowie recorded five songs for the film including “Underground,” “Magic Dance,” and “As the World Falls Down.” (1986, 101 min, DCP ‘Scope) + THE HUNGER Catherine Deneuve and David Bowie play a centuries-old vampire couple in New York City who enlist the aid of doctor Susan Sarandon when one begins to age rapidly. The feature debut of Tony Scott is a visually scrumptious mélange of horror, romance, science and eroticism. (1983, 97 min, DCP ‘Scope)
