Blue Velvet: New Digital Cinema Restoration
David Lynch’s extraordinary, nightmarish neo-noir has now outgrown its cult reputation to become a universally acknowledged classic. From the iconic opening scenes where the camera descends from the shining white picket fences into the bug-infested undergrowth, to the career-defining deranged psycho performance by Dennis Hopper as Frank Booth, Blue Velvet is one of the most intense cinematic experiences ever. It also boasts an innovative soundtrack, reinventing vintage pop standards alongside a dark score by Angelo Badalamenti. An exclusive preview of the re-release on Fri 2 Dec.
