‘Mysteries of Love’

‘Mysteries of Love’

Celebrate 30 years of Lynchian thriller 'Blue Velvet' at the Guild Cinema.

‘Blue Velvet’ Still Thrills


Many die-hard David Lynch fans are focused on the 2017 reboot of Lynch’s iconic ’90s TV series “Twin Peaks.” But here’s the thing: some of us Lynchian obsessives think the original series already ran well past its prime.

The TV drama’s primary mystery – who killed Laura Palmer? – resolved in the ninth episode of the second (22-episode!) season. If you’re also perplexed by this rehash, here’s a cinematic prescription: celebrate the 30th anniversary of one of Lynch’s greatest films, “Blue Velvet,” at one of two screenings at the Guild Cinema (3405 Central NE) the weekend of June 3-4.

Released in 1986, “Blue Velvet” melds film noir and psychological horror to sublime effect in concert with unlikely, perfect casting; Dennis Hopper was Lynch’s third choice for nitrous-abusing villain Frank Booth.

The film’s stellar soundtrack boasts an orchestral score by Angelo Badalamenti (including a Julee Cruise number), the eponymous Bobby Vinton song and Roy Orbison’s “In Dreams.”

JUNE 3 & 4
“Blue Velvet”
10:30 p.m. only, The Guild Cinema, 3405 Central Ave. NW, 255-1848, guildcinema.com
