STRANGER THAN PARADISE

United States | 1984 | Jim Jarmusch

STRANGER THAN PARADISE film still

Sorry, A Christmas Story. For our money, this minimalist, miserablist comic triptych by NE Ohio native Jim Jarmusch remains the best Cleveland movie ever made—even if only one third of it was shot here! The low-budget, b&w work follows a NYC slacker (John Lurie) as he shuffles off to frigid Cleveland and sunny Florida with his 16-year-old Hungarian cousin (Eszter Balint) and his dim buddy (Richard Edson). 35mm. 90 min.

Special event pricing $12; members, CIA & CSU I.D. holders, and those age 25 & under $9. No passes, twofers, or radio winners.
