Cinema offers 1997 neo-noir ‘Lost Highway’

ROME — Cinema Capitol, 230 W. Dominick St., will screen “Lost Highway” from Friday, July 8 through Monday, July 11.

Show times are Friday and Saturday, July 8 and 9 at 4 and 7 p.m.; Sunday, July 10 at 1 and 4 p.m.; and Monday, July 11 at 7 p.m.

Director David Lynch’s 1997 neo-noir “Lost Highway” returns to theaters in 4K restoration. The restored version is supervised by Lynch himself. “Lost Highway” is Lynch’s seventh feature film that travels down a twisting road of perverse menace as a jazz saxophonist (Bill Pullman) and his wife (Patricia Arquette) begin receiving disturbing VHS tapes — leading to jealousy, murder and a startling mid-act transformation that radically re-contextualizes everything that came before it.

Berserk violence, scrambled identities, a thunderous industrial soundtrack, and one of cinema’s most memorable Mystery Men (Robert Blake) — Lynch swirls it all into a screeching psychological manifestation of guilt, trauma and denial that ranks among his most potent cinematic nightmares. 

Tickets can be purchased at www.romecapitol.com or by calling 315-337-6277. Tickets are $8; $7 for students and military, and $6 for Capitol “Friends.” 

“Lost Highway” runs 135 minutes and is rated R.
