Last night (3/28) we hosted our second official movie nite with the screening of “The Man Who Fell to Earth”. The film originally released in 1976 directed by Nicolas Roeg and written by Paul Mayersberg, based on Walter Tevis' 1963 novel of the same name.
Thomas Jerome Newton (David Bowie) is an alien who has come to Earth in search of water to save his home planet. Aided by lawyer Oliver Farnsworth (Buck Henry), Thomas uses his knowledge of advanced technology to create profitable inventions. While developing a method to transport water, Thomas meets Mary-Lou (Candy Clark), a quiet hotel clerk, and begins to fall in love with her. Just as he is ready to leave Earth, Thomas is intercepted by the U.S. government, and his entire plan is threatened.
Exclusively for the movie nite we created the“Man Who Fell” Tee, now available online. We also highly recommend visiting the David Bowie exhibit now at the Brooklyn Museum!
