The Twin Peaks Giveaway
David Lynch and Mark Frost’s early 90s cult series Twin Peaks has experienced a recent resurgence in popularity among 20-30 somethings aching for good TV. The Hollywood Theater is perhaps the most appropriate place in Pittsburgh to host a 4-day marathon screening of the show in its entirety in conjunction with a Saturday night Silencio performance. The internationally-renowned band is known for performing music inspired by the works of David Lynch, a treat for his ever loyal following of viewers. This Lynchian weekend will begin Thursday, March 20 and continue through midnight the following Sunday, March 23.
Remembered for its quirks, Twin Peaks has been revered as one of Time Magazine’s “Best Shows of All-Time” and came in 12th on Entertainment Weekly’s “25 Best Cult TV Shows from the Past 25 Years.” Whether you’re into it for the psychotic mystery a la Leland Palmer, the babes, or the donuts, all fans can undeniably agree the show is an addictive series of events too surreal to turn away from.
The schedule for the Twin Peaks Marathon is:
— Thursday, March 20, 7:30-9:15 p.m. Season 1, pilot. $1 damn good coffee & doughnuts
— Friday, March 21, 7 p.m.-12:30 a.m. Season 1, Episodes 2-8
— Saturday, March 22, 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Season 2, Episodes 1-5
— Sunday, March 23, 10 a.m.-midnight. Season 2, Episodes 6-22
Activities include a costume contest and raffle with Lynchian prizes, a cherry stem tying contest, and concessions like cherry pie and PBR.
A $20 Black Lodge Pass will gain you entrance to come and go as you please throughout the marathon. Tickets for Saturday night’s 7PM Silencio concert with DJ Zombo are $12 in advance and $15 at the door. Individual screening passes can be purchased at the door.
