The Carolina Theater in Greensboro, North Carolina announced the screening of Lynch's latest film on March 16th as part of their Cinematique Series. The 79-year-old vaudeville house turned performing arts center seems a fitting location for Lynch's fun house of a movie. Tickets are going for the modest price of $7 or $5 for students and seniors, and the website promises the cryptic running time as "7:00PM until ...", so you never know what the organizers might have planned -- this is the same film that used a cow as a marketing device after all.
The film stars Laura Dern, Jeremy Irons, and Justin Theroux; but even after repeated viewings of the first and second trailers, I really couldn't tell you what it was about. Although, Ryan's review does a better job of explaining the plot than I ever could, so I'll just leave it at that. The film premiered at the San Francisco Indiefest and was one of the more high profile selections at the festival, Inland Empire is slowly working it's way through the US, so I guess if you are a fan, you are just going to have to be patient and hope the film makes it's way to you.
