David Bowie wasn’t the first rock star to attempt to make the leap onto the big screen, and he certainly, at least in this celebrity obsessed world, won’t be the last. The percentage of success such artistic leaps have had is probably incalculable (sometimes box office profits are a false indicator). But much like art, our perceptions of film are a funny thing. Over time, works can lose or gain an incredible amount of cultural significance.
Starting this week, you can put your perception of one cult classic to the test, as Cinema 21 presents “The Man Who Fell to Earth”, starring the space oddity himself, David Bowie.
Cinema 21 is tucked away nicely in the middle of the ‘spendy first’ at 616 NW 21st Avenue. Showtimes for “The Man Who Fell to Earth” are at 7:00 PM, with late shows on Saturday, and Tuesday to Thursday at 9:30 PM, plus an additional 2:00 PM matinee this Saturday and Sunday.
Tickets are $8.00 for adults, $7.00 for students, with ID, and $5.00 for 62 years plus and children. Matinee shows are $6.00.
