When: Sat., Jan. 4 2014
Today at 6 p.m., the Lakewood Public Library hosts a free screening of the 1991's Naked Lunch. The bizarre science fiction film takes the classic novel by William S. Burroughs and retells the story as though Burroughs himself were actually the main character. It weaves in other fictional ideas from his writing and actual autobiographical details of his life. Director David Cronenberg leads the audience through a strange and fantastical journey filled with giant centipedes, talking insects and a very controlling typewriter. Admission is free. (Trenholme).
