In addition to Eraserhood Forever, PhilaMOCA is also hosting LYNCH 101 presented by Video Pirates on September 3:

LYNCH 101 is a comedic video history of the film and television career of David Lynch compiled and hosted by PhilaMOCA’s director/curator Eric Bresler. While the program will cover all of his major film and television achievements, it will mainly concentrate on rarities including Lynch’s short films, music videos, commercials, and mainstream coverage of his work. From Japanese coffee-in-a-can commercials starring the cast of TWIN PEAKS to Lynch-shot film festival intros, LYNCH 101 is both a comprehensive introduction for the unfamiliar and a surprise-filled joyride for the die-hard fans.

As well as the after party for the opening night of PAFA’s David Lynch: The Unified Field exhibit on September 12, featuring a live performance by a place both wonderful and strange who will be presenting a re-working of the Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me deleted scenes along with a DJ set.

There will also be screenings of the faux David Lynch biopicThe Dreamlife of David L., on September 4, 17 and 24.

PhilaMOCA is located at 531 N. 12th St., Philadelphia, PA 19123. You’ll recognize it by the fantastic Eraserhead mural.
