“A Genuine Tribute to Tom Waits” 35mm Double Bill
Hosted by Jesse Hawthorne Ficks

7:00pm DOWN BY LAW (35mm, 1986)
Jim Jarmusch’s deliciously deadpan comedy is even more poignant now than it was upon its release 30+ years ago. With Robby Müller’s glorious black and white camerawork gliding through the cinematic streets and swamps of New Orleans, its the pitch perfect cast led by Tom Waits and John Lurie (both of whom who scored the film) along with Nicoletta Braschi and Roberto Benigni’s priceless performances that could make this one of your all time favorite films. Come find out at this 35mm screening courtesy of Janus Films. 107 minutes. Preceded 35mm trailers by other Jim Jarmusch gems.

NOTE: As an added bonus, Spoke Art will be designing an exclusive limited edition poster available only at this event!

9:15pm BiG TiME (Extremely RARE 35mm, 1988)
Chris Blum’s unforgettably unique documentary of Tom Waits late-1980s live show has to be seen to be believed! Oddly enough, it never had a proper theatrical release in the US and is still unavailable on any home media! Scripted by Tom Waits and musical collaborator (and partner in crime) Kathleen Brennan, this mesmerizing and surreal live show (shot in Los Angeles and San Francisco circa Waits’ albums Frank’s Wild Years and Rain Dogs) will leave you begging to watch it all over again! Do not miss this EXTREMELY RARE 35MM SCREENiNG courtesy of Park Circus screened from the only known 35mm print in existence! Special guest, director Chris Blum tentatively scheduled to be IN PERSON! 90 minutes.
