Many of thedesign-themed flicks will be making their U.S. debut, including The London Underground Map (1987), which tells the story behind those iconic colorful squiggles; Chelsea Hotel (1981), depicting members of the artistic community that resided there, such as Andy Warhol and William S. Burroughs; and Cracked Actor (1974), in which David Bowie delves into mime, Kabuki and how he created alter ego Ziggy Stardust. The latter two feature a follow-up Q&A with the BBC’s creative director, Alan Yentob. For tickets go to
