Sad news came Monday morning when it was announced that David Bowie died at 69 from cancer. While many radio stations and music blogs are paying tribute to the musician through music marathons and thoughtful essays, the Turf Club is set to honor the icon's film career.
Though his music legacy is epic, Bowie also had an impressive and varied film career as well, with a nice mix of quiet art-house films, weird children's tales, a sexy vampire flick (where he not-so-sexily ages), and concert documentaries.
Each evening at the Turf will be a double-header. The two-week series kicks off tonight with Jim Henson's dark odyssey Labyrinth, followed by the concert doc Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars. Next Wednesday, January 20, will offer the vampire classic The Hunger and The Serious Moonlight Tour.
Films start at 8 p.m. with doors at 7 p.m. (or pregame and show up for happy hour at 5 p.m.). You must be 21 or over to take in these flicks. Both double-header screenings are free.
