'Jodorowsky's Dune' to screen five times today

Posted By on Fri, May 2, 2014 at 10:35 AM

Today, Spotlight Theatres shows five screenings of the much-anticipated documentary of Jodorowsky's Dune.

The film tells the story of the “greatest sci-fi movie NEVER made,” an adaptation of Frank Herbert's best-selling 1965 novel Dune, meant to be directed by avant-garde filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky.

Another version of Dune was eventually released in 1984, starring Kyle MacLachlan and Sting and directed by David Lynch, but was a huge box office flop.

Screenings, made possible by the Psychotronic Film Series, are at 11:55 a.m., 2:20 p.m., 5:10 p.m., 7:40 p.m. and 10:15 p.m. at standard ticket prices.

A portion of proceeds for today only go to support Psychotronic Film Series efforts to bring alternative cinema to town. The film remains at Spotlight for the rest of the week.

    While there is plenty of worry about how violent crime will affect tourism, the real concern is how it will affect the decision of residents whether or not to stay. The idea of leaving for a more safe locale seems almost inconceivable to those of us who’ve invested many years and whole lifetimes here. But Savannah’s just like anyplace else— people and businesses can decide it’s just not worth it anymore.
