David Bowie Birthday Double Feature!
LABYRINTH / ZIGGY STARDUST AND THE SPIDERS FROM MARS
4K DCP Restoration!

LABYRINTH
1986, Sony Repertory, 101 min, UK, USA, Dir: Jim Henson

David Bowie and a young Jennifer Connelly star in this tour de force of live-action puppetry. Fifteen-year-old Sarah (Connelly), angry with her little brother, wishes him away to the imaginary land of the Goblin King from her favorite book. Her musings take physical form and she is granted 13 hours to rescue him from the phantasmagoric realm of her own creation, lest the boy become a goblin forever.


ZIGGY STARDUST AND THE SPIDERS FROM MARS
1973, Pennebaker Hegedus Films, 90 min, UK, Dir: D.A. Pennebaker

Director D.A. Pennebaker’s filmic record of David Bowie’s brain-frying final concert as his Ziggy Stardust incarnation in July 1973 is key evidence why Bowie was suddenly catapulted to slavish cult adoration. A bridge between cult fetish and massive popular appeal right before the record industry (and the Thin White Duke himself) homogenized the pop star’s image into something less threatening.
