To celebrate our new Monochrome Mondays summer series, come enjoy a very special evening of rock n roll and rhythm & blues courtesy of the Man in Black, the Big O, Roy Orbison. Orbison would have turned 80 this year, had he lived (he died from a heart attack in 1988 at the age of 52). A year before he passed, he starred in this tribute special, accompanied by an enviable roster of peers and admirers, all under the orchestration of producer T-Bone Burnett.

All Orbison’s hits are featured, including many that carry their own cinematic assocations, most famously In Dreams (Blue Velvet) and Oh Pretty Woman, Only the Lonely, Dream Baby, The Comedians, Ooby Dooby, Leah, Running Scared, Crying and Claudette.

Free screening. Priority seating for ticket holders to The Last Picture Show.

Teenagers Duane and Sonny (Jeff Bridges and Timothy Bottoms) are best friends in a small Texas town at the dawn of the 1950s, but the soul of the film is Ben Johnson’s Sam the Lion, proprietor of the local movie house, and a father figure in the boy’s lives. Robert Surtees’ dusty monochrome cinematography evokes a great yearning for a lost golden age.
