Come celebrate the 40th anniversary of one of the wildest blockbusters ever committed to celluloid! Author Max Evry will be on hand to intro the film and sell/sign copies of his book A Masterpiece in Disarray.

David Lynch brought Frank Herbert’s wildly popular science-fiction novel Dune to the big screen in 1984 and it’s been a trip-tastic go-to-movie ever since. Set in the year 10,191 when the universe is dependent on a spice called Melange that can extend life and can fold time, a Duke’s son (Kyle MacLachlan) leads the enslaved desert warriors on the spice-producing planet Arrakis in an epic battle with the evil Emperor. In the tradition of futuristic space worlds like Star Wars and The Matrix, Dune is about a young man deemed the messiah rising up and trying to make things better for the people. Time, space, telepathy, monsters, madness, love, and righteousness – long live the fighters!

Max Evry is the author of A Masterpiece in Disarray: David Lynch’s Dune – An Oral History. This 560-page book chronicles the making, unmaking, and reclaiming of Lynch’s infamous 1984 adaptation of Frank Herbert’s sci-fi classic Dune. A critical and financial disaster upon release, the movie has slowly developed a cult following over the decades despite Lynch himself distancing himself from it. Two-years in the making, the book features interviews with dozens of key talent involved in the original film version of Dune, including Kyle MacLachlan, Sean Young, Virginia Madsen, producer Raffaella De Laurentiis, casting director Jane Jenkins, costume designer Bob Ringwood, Universal president Frank Price, and Lynch himself. A Masterpiece in Disarray has received critical acclaim from The Wall Street Journal, AV Club, The Film Stage, Yahoo!, Empire, and more.
