Shotgun Cinema presents MYSTERY TRAIN

DATE
Wed, May 14, 2014
TIME
7:00pm - 10:00pm

MYSTERY TRAIN weaves together the stories of teenage Japanese tourists, a sorrowful Italian widow, and a downtrodden British immigrant. All are luckless, passing through, searching, and haunted by the faded glory of Elvis, Sun Records, and Stax. This downcast comedy plays out in post-industrial isolation: in shuttered streets and crumbling buildings, dive bars, all-night liquor stores, and rundown hotels. Jarmusch’s vision of late-‘80s Memphis revels in the seedy mysteries of a lost city haunted by the giants of its music and the ghosts of its past, combining the comic absurdity of his best-known work with his unique and unmistakable darkness.

Doors open at 6:30pm. Tickets available only at the door the night of the screening. Cash and credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, Discover, AmEx) accepted. No checks, please.
