Gotta Lotta Lynch on the Big Screen This Week

Pretty much every movie you can watch in Twin Cities theaters this week.

Scenes from ‘Blue Velvet’ and ‘Dazed and Confused’

This is obviously a huge weekend for non-movie-related events. But if it's too hot and/or too rainy and you've had enough of crowds, there are some worthwhile dark rooms for you to duck into. Of note: In connection with the new movies Lynch/Oz, The Main is screening three David L. flicks (and you can catch a fourth at The Grandview).
