It comes as no surprise that DYING TO KNOW, Gay Dillingham's documentary has been held over at three Laemmle locations (Monica Film Center, Playhouse 7 and Claremont 5). After all, it chronicles the intriguing friendship between TIMOTHY LEARY and RAM DASS, two of the 60s most fascinating luminaries. Plus, it doesn't hurt that the film has been playing to great critical and audience acclaim. To wit, check out this short video clip featuring audience footage from the film's premiere at the Royal last week. To celebrate this sleeper hit, we've procured a copy of Ram Dass' seminal book BE HERE NOW signed by the great mystic himself! EN [...]

"What are you doing in my closet, Jeffrey Beaumont?" David Lynch's BLUE VELVET, Restored for Thirtieth Anniversary Screenings.
There's something going on behind the white picket fences of Lumberton, North Carolina.
