Hey Chicago! Attend Our Celebration of David Lynch

on May 28, 2015, 12:15pm

It’s a sunny, woodsy day in Lumberton, so get those chainsaws out. This is the mighty W.O.O.D., the musical voice of Lumberton. At the sound of the falling tree, it’s 9:30. There’s a whole lotta wood waitin’ out there, so let’s get goin’.

Hey candy-colored clowns, listen up! Consequence of Sound is pleased to announce a new partnership with Chicago’s greatest landmark, The Music Box Theatre. On Saturday, June 13th, we’re hosting “A Celebration of David Lynch”, a terrifying evening that culminates with a very special midnight screening of the cult classic, Blue Velvet.

Prior to the screening, The Music Box Theatre lounge will be transformed into an eerie Lynchian world with themed art work, music, baked goods, photo opportunities, and drink specials to further bring the auteur’s cinematic elements to life. Guests will also be able to interact with performers dressed up as characters from Lynch’s most iconic productions.

Amidst the madness, Editor-in-Chief Michael Roffman and Film Editors Dominick Suzanne-Mayer and Justin Gerber will lead a discussion on the film and the bizarre worlds that Lynch has created over time. This will end with the start of the night’s big mystery: a search for the missing ear. The first suave fucker to solve the case wins a killer prize.

Tickets are currently available for $9 at the theatre’s official site. Do it for Van Gogh.

Blue Velvet tells the story of college student Jeffrey Beaumont (Kyle MacLachlan). When Jeffrey returns home after his father has a stroke, he discovers a severed ear in an abandoned field. Beaumont teams up with detective’s daughter Sandy Williams (Laura Dern) to solve the mystery. They believe beautiful lounge singer Dorothy Vallens (Isabella Rossellini) may be connected with the case, and Beaumont finds himself becoming drawn into her dark, twisted world, where he encounters sexually depraved psychopath Frank Booth (Dennis Hopper).
