Free screening of new David Lynch documentary
Greg Olson, film curator at Seattle Art Museum, is a big David Lynch fan: he’s the author of a Lynch book (“Beautiful Dark”) and every year presents the annual, always-sold-out Twin Peaks Festival. And so it’s fitting that he and SAM are presenting a special Lynch event in a few weeks: the first Northwest screening of Lynch’s new documentary “Meditation, Creativity, Peace.” It’ll screen alongside Lynch’s 2001 fever-dream thriller “Mulholland Drive,” and the evening will also feature Top Pot dougnuts (because Lynch likes doughnuts). And the best part: it’s all free (though you must order your tickets in advance). Friday, August 2, at 7 p.m. at SAM’s Plestcheeff Auditorium; it’ll screen again (sans doughnuts) on August 7.
