The Man Who Fell to Earth
Honoring Roeg (and in tribute to Bowie) a beautiful digital restoration of this cult classic
In honor of the late filmmaker Nicolas Roeg (and in belated tribute to David Bowie), we are pleased to offer special screenings of this beautiful digital restoration of a real cult classic.
David Bowie stars as Thomas Jerome Newton, an alien from a distant, dying planet, who lands on Earth and amasses great wealth through advanced technology patents, while he eventually forgets the reason he came here in the first place. Bowie is ideal in his first major feature performance, and Roeg’s unconventional story structure transforms a science-fiction premise into a searing and satirical portrait of American society.
