Friday, 1/12 — 35mm screening + Skype Q&A with director Slava Tsukerman!
1/13 & 1/14 — New digital restoration!

In honor of the new digital restoration by Vinegar Syndrome, we proudly present New Wave classic, LIQUID SKY (1982). Since the 80s, LIQUID SKY could only be viewed in theatrical 35mm screenings and out-of-print VHS and DVD limited-releases. After two years of collaboration with Tsukerman, Vinegar Syndrome has released the first full restoration. See it on Friday, 1/12 in gorgeous 35mm and then see the newly restored digital version on Saturday and Sunday to view it as never before in all of its neon glory!

Fashion model, Margaret, dreams of stardom and shares a New York apartment with musician and heroin dealer, Adrian. Unbeknownst to the couple, tiny aliens have come to Earth seeking out heroin and are making a home on their roof. Realizing human dopamine is more satisfying than heroin, the aliens begin killing everyone Margaret has sex with in order to feed off their pleasure-providing neurons. Meanwhile, a German scientist observes from a nearby apartment hoping to capture the aliens. Starring Anne Carlisle in a dual role as Margaret and Jimmy, Margaret's drug-addicted model rival. Tsukerman's LIQUID SKY is an avant-garde, queer masterpiece and a true depiction of 80's New York.
