Today, Spotlight Theatres shows five screenings of the much-anticipated documentary of Jodorowsky's Dune.
The film tells the story of the “greatest sci-fi movie NEVER made,” an adaptation of Frank Herbert's best-selling 1965 novel Dune, meant to be directed by avant-garde filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky.

Another version of Dune was eventually released in 1984, starring Kyle MacLachlan and Sting and directed by David Lynch, but was a huge box office flop.
Screenings, made possible by the Psychotronic Film Series, are at 11:55 a.m., 2:20 p.m., 5:10 p.m., 7:40 p.m. and 10:15 p.m. at standard ticket prices.
A portion of proceeds for today only go to support Psychotronic Film Series efforts to bring alternative cinema to town. The film remains at Spotlight for the rest of the week.
