This Valentine’s Day, Nitehawk’s BOOZE & BOOKS presents the infamous tale of LOLITA (a 35mm presentation).
The screening will have prize giveaways of Lolita shirts & gift certificates courtesy of our partner Out of Print along with an inspired cocktail and some heart-shaped goodies!
Stanley Kubrick’s cinematic vision of Vladimir Nabokov’s book Lolita (who also wrote the screenplay) may be an unconventional love story for Valentine’s Day but the film’s palpable depiction of obsession is eternally alluring…and scandalizing! After taking a room to let with a single mother, Prof. Humbert Humbert falls inappropriately in love and lust with her young teenage daughter Lolita. Lolita teases and takes advantage of his affections with cruelty as their dysfunctional relationship continues throughout the years. Love is never simple.
Happy Valentine’s Day from Booze & Books!
