Food/Film: Eraserhead – Fringe Arts

Wednesday, May 17, 2017 – 7pm

“What makes Eraserhead great—and still, perhaps the best of all Lynch’s films? Intensity. Nightmare clarity. And perhaps also it’s the single-mindedness of its vision.” –Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune

David Lynch’s surreal and seminal feature-length film debut portrays Philadelphia as a desolate black-and-white industrial landscape, devoid of warmth. The film is at once a beautiful look into the mind of protagonist Harry (Jack Nance), a lost dreamer, and a haunting portrayal of marriage and responsibility.

$20 / includes film and light meal (stay tuned for menu details)

Exploring David Lynch’s “Eraserhood” | Hidden City Philadelphia

April 16 @ 11:00 am – 12:30 pm

“Philadelphia, more than any filmmaker, influenced me. It’s the sickest, most corrupt, decaying, fear-ridden city imaginable.” — David Lynch

When David Lynch moved to Philadelphia in the late 1960s to attend PAFA, he discovered a city that was both terrifying and inspiring. Explore the neighborhood that so electrified Lynch’s imagination in the company of two tour guides: Hidden City’s Peter Woodall and Lynch aficionado Bob Bruhin. During this one-and-a-half hour walking tour, we’ll delve into the neighborhood’s pre- and post-Lynch history, as well as the sights and sounds that inspired Lynch’s movies, particularly Eraserhead.
