As we all wait anxiously to hear if David Lynch will be involved in Showtime’s nascent Twin Peaks reboot, we can soothe our nerves in another red-draped room. Tonight Nitehawk launches its new Booze & Books series, in which the theater teams up with local publishers, writers, and bookstores for themed screenings, with a showing of Dune — incidentally, Lynch’s least Lynchian film, despite the presence of Kyle MacLachlan. To celebrate the release of Folio Society’s illustrated edition of Frank Herbert’s classic sci-fi novel, enjoy the psychedelic, futuristic movie adaptation. The 1984 epic follows the source material faithfully, portraying all the love, war, and space travel surrounding the spice trade in the year 10191. Illustrator Sam Weber will introduce the film, followed by an after-party with themed cocktails.
