Second Screen Cult Cinema says

In the mid-1970s, cult film director Alejandro Jodorowsky (the avant-garde force behind the surreal El Topo and The Holy Mountain) attempted to adapt and film Frank Herbert’s science fiction novel Dune.

He failed spectacularly.

Join us Wednesday, April 13, at The Vault in downtown Tampa for a rare screening of Jodorowsky’s Dune – a fascinating exploration into a lost cult masterpiece.

The documentary examines Jodorowsky’s creative process while working on his unfilmed epic. His gargantuan script for Dune would have resulted in a 14-hour film (!), with a cast that was to include Salvador Dalí, Orson Welles, Gloria Swanson, Mick Jagger, and many others. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the project stalled due to budget issues, though Jodorowsky’s script, storyboards, and concept art went on to inspire such films as Blade Runner, Terminator, Star Wars, and Alien. (Dune was eventually directed by David Lynch and released in 1984.)

The evening kicks off at 6 p.m. with a cocktail hour, curated music selections from DJ Suspiria, craft cocktails, and food available for purchase. The film will start at 7:30 p.m. Assemble your crew and come hang with us, and stay after the credits roll for a group discussion about the film.
