David Lynch: The Art Life at Speed Cinema (June 23–25)
$9 | Times vary
If you have a penchant for the odd, the strange and the unsettling, then you’re probably a fan of David Lynch. In this documentary, you get to explore the life of the auteur through his “art, music, and early films, exposing the recesses of his unique world full of contradictions.” In the film, the crew is invited into Lynch’s private compound and painting studio where he reveals personal stories that “unfold like scenes from his films. Strange characters come into focus, only to fade again into the past, all leaving an indelible mark.” —Staff

And even better, Lydia House’s kitchen and bar will be open. —Ethan Smith

Things are going to get weird at The MAMMOTH this weekend as What Cheer? Brigade, a 20-piece, punk marching band will play their asses off to help send books to prisoners.
