DUNE (1984) – 40th Anniversary Screening!

USA | 1984 | 137 minutes | PG


A WORLD BEYOND YOUR EXPERIENCE, BEYOND YOUR IMAGINATION.

It is a world where sandworms 1,000 feet long guard creation’s greatest treasure – the spice that prolongs life, and enables the mind to fold space and slow time. Where a prophecy will be fulfilled, and a young leader with incredible powers will emerge to command an army for control of a universe and its source of ultimate power. The planet called Dune.

It was derided by film critics and fans of the critically acclaimed Frank Herbert novel in equal measure. Still, none of that mattered to a young teenage boy raised on STAR WARS but delving voraciously into weird fiction and horror. This movie was made for me. Esoteric, dreamlike, and truly alien, David Lynch’s arcane spirit still manages to punctuate the elaborate science fiction mythology and rampant studio meddling. While we await part two of Denis Villeneuve’s more serious and faithful adaptation, I humbly submit that there are more bizarre and ludicrously entertaining delights to be found here. Whether it’s Sir Patrick Steward carrying a pug into battle, an oiled-up Sting in a winged Speedo, or a young Kyle MacLachlan actually riding a giant worm, David Lynch’s DUNE is a gloriously flawed gem you’ll need to see to believe. – Steven Landry
