Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me

Meet Laura Palmer... In a town where nothing is as it seems... And everyone has something to hide.

“You know, this is — excuse me — a damn fine cup of coffee!”

The Rio Theatre‘s Friday Late Night Movie series continues on February 24 with a very special screening of David Lynch‘s TWIN PEAKS: FIRE WALK WITH ME. We’re taking the time to re-visit the film on the 30th Anniversary of Laura Palmer’s death; she was found murdered, at the age of seventeen, on the morning of February 24, 1989 in an event that shook the small town of Twin Peak, Washington to its core… And led FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper down the rabbit hole of one of the most compelling (not to mention surreal) murder investigations ever.

Despite Lynch‘s critically acclaimed cult-classic TWIN PEAKS only running on television for two seasons (1990-1991), the show managed to make an enormous impact upon both its devoted audience and the greater pop-culture landscape when the series’ slavish fan following got the big-screen adaptation they were hoping for in 1992, when TWIN PEAKS: FIRE WALK WITH ME was released.

Though the film is often considered a prequel to the events contained within the TV show’s premise surrounding the mysterious death of high school student Palmer and the special FBI agent tasked with the the investigation, TWIN PEAKS: FIRE WALK WITH ME effectively answers many of the deep questions fans had following the show’s cancellation.

Since the re-booted third season in 2017, a new generation of log-lovers has been brought into the Elk’s Point fold, resulting in renewed audience requests to revisit everyone’s favourite, weirdo Washington town – home to mares eating oats, cherry pie, and more – on our gib neercs. Get ready for Lynch‘s ever-present quirky aesthetic, a fantastic score from the late, great Angelo Badalamenti, and a star-studded cast including Kyle MacLachlan, Sheryl Lee, Ray Wise, Peggy Lipton, Heather Graham, Mädchen Amick, Chris Isaak, Kiefer Sutherland, Miguel Ferrer, Moira Kelly, Kiefer Sutherland, Harry Dean Stanton, and David Bowie.

TWIN PEAKS: FIRE WALK WITH ME (David Lynch, 1992 / 135 minutes / 18A) | A young FBI agent disappears while investigating a murder miles from Twin Peaks that may be related to the future murder of Laura Palmer; the last week of the life of Laura Palmer is chronicled.

In the questionable town of Deer Meadow, Washington, FBI Agent Desmond inexplicably disappears while hunting for the man who murdered a teen girl. The killer is never apprehended, and, after experiencing dark visions and supernatural encounters, Agent Dale Cooper chillingly predicts that the culprit will claim another life. Meanwhile, in the more cozy town of Twin Peaks, hedonistic beauty Laura Palmer hangs with lowlifes and seems destined for a grisly fate.
