To launch the new Jim Jarmusch film, Only Lovers Left Alive, which hits cinemas on 11th April and stars Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston, Cinema Paradiso Events are holding an exclusive preview experience on Tuesday April 1st in New York. The evening will start off at 7pm sharp with a screening of Jim Jarmusch’s crypto-vampire love story at the Sunshine Cinema, followed by live performances at Santos Party House where musicians from the film’s soundtrack – White Hills, Jozef Van Wissem, Yasmine Hamdan, Zola Jesus and Jim Jarmusch’s band SQÜRL – will all play live. Guests are encouraged to wear sunglasses & dress gloves to the event. Tickets including film screening and live event are priced at $35 + bf, and are on sale HERE. Full event information available HERE.. Following the success of previous events held in Cologne, Berlin, Paris and London, this is a special advance screening of the film ahead of its general release in the USA, so tickets are expected to go fast. After the screening there will be a specially curated evening of live music from the artists as well as DJs and installations from the film.
Set against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangier, an underground musician, deeply depressed by the direction of human activities, reunites with his resilient and enigmatic lover. Their love story has already endured several centuries at least, but their debauched idyll is soon disrupted by her wild and uncontrollable younger sister. Can these wise but fragile outsiders continue to survive as the modern world collapses around them? With an all star cast including Oscar winner TILDA SWINTON (The Grand Budapest Hotel, We Need To Talk About Kevin), TOM HIDDLESTON (The Avengers, Thor), MIA WASIKOWSKA (Stoker, Lawless), ANTON YELCHIN (Star Trek Into Darkness) and JOHN HURT (Harry Potter, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE is the apotheosis of American Independent film and underground music combined, from acclaimed director JIM JARMUSCH (Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai and Dead Man).
