First up is Sunday’s special memorial tribute to the late, great icon of music and film (and, to a lesser extent, the dramatic stage), David Bowie. Bowie passed away unexpectedly a few weeks back at the age of 69 (as if you had not heard), and many locals were able to enjoy seeing him on the very big screen at SCAD Cinema Circle’s recent presentation of 1986’s fantasy-musical “Labyrinth.”
The screen at the 50-capacity Bean is, well, slightly smaller than the one at the 1,100-seat Trustees. However, it is, as they say, just right for the room.
The exact title of this feature-length motion picture will remain a closely guarded secret until showtime, and fans of either Bowie or merely of adventurous cinema are encouraged to take a chance, buy a ticket and prepare to be entertained. It can be revealed that the PFS’ selection is hardly ever seen in public, and is one of Bowie’s least-known, but most intriguing and memorable filmic appearances.
Admission is just $8, and showtime is at 8 p.m. A variety of Bowie-related prizes will be given away just before the movie, so you may wish to bring a few extra bucks for raffle tickets.
