EAC Film Screenings to Continue; Lynch's Mulholland Drive is Next

Eastport Arts Center film screenings will continue, with next on screen the surrealist mystery Mulholland Drive (2001, R), written and directed by David Lynch, on Friday, July 7 at 7 pm, and Saturday, July 8 at 2 pm. Mulholland Drive received the Best Director Award at the Cannes Film Festival, as well as more than a score of other awards; Stephen Holden of The New York Times called it “an ever-deepening reflection on the allure of Hollywood and on the multiple role-playing and self-invention that the movie-going experience promises.” Next will be My Brilliant Career (1979, G), an Australian period drama directed by Gillian Armstrong, based on the novel by Miles Franklin, on Thursday, July 20 at 7 pm, and Sunday, July 23 at 2 pm. Next will be Babette’s Feast (1987, G), a Danish drama directed by Gabriel Axel, based on the story by Isak Dinesen, on Sunday, July 30 at 7 pm, and Sunday, August 6 at 2 pm. Next will be Mystery Train (1989, R), a comedy/drama film with three independent storylines, written and directed by Jim Jarmusch, on Saturday, August 12 at 7 pm, and Sunday, August 13 at 2 pm. EAC films plans to show films through the remainder of the year, with more titles to be announced soon.
