Elephant Man
Wild at Heart

Unfortunately, a lot of the first run DL movies don't make it here.

Lost Highway (Uni Film society screening)

Im hoping to catch Eraserhead in London but realistically I just dont think its feasible. I just dont have to money for another trip!

But, more than anything...I MUST see Mulholland Drive on the big screen....I dont know how/where..but its going to happen! My biggest regret is never having seen it in the cinema.

I just saw INLAND EMPIRE last month.

I saw BLUE VELVET, MULHOLLAND DR., LOST HIGHWAY on the big screen. I don't recall if I saw WILD AT HEART on the screen. I don't think so.

Maybe we need a traveling DL film festival that goes around to those areas too that don't show DL films usually.

Alas, I was too young to see anything before The Straight Story, and along with Mulholland Drive, it's all I've seen in a cinema.

Still waiting for INLAND EMPIRE...

Have seen both Blue Velvet (a re-screening 6 months ago) and INLAND EMPIRE on two pre-screenings (the last screening involving an interview with two of Lynch's Norwegian camera operators). Before that I was too young.

At the cinematheque in Oslo I have watched the following:
The Elephant Man
Wild at Heart
Twin Peaks - Fire Walk with Me
The Straight Story
Mulholland Drive
Lynch (one) - if it counts

I've seen them the same place as Christian (though I'm much older than him, heh!).

Eraserhead (twice), Dune (twice), Blue Velvet, Wild at Heart, Twin Peaks: international pilot (digibeta projection), Hotel Room (digibeta projection) and Lost Highway (six or seven times).

Mulholland dr., The Straight Story and Inland Empire in regular movie theatres. Mulholland dr. (twice), Blue Velvet (twice) and Fire Walk with Me at the cinematheque in Bergen, Norway.

I still haven't seen The Elephant Man in any shape or form. I know, I know, it's inexcusable.

I've seen only INLAND EMPIRE in Prague.I was on vacation last summer and i couldn't prevent myself from going.UNfortunately i lost the first half hour,but i believe (after re-seeing the movie many times) that the rest of the movie is better.

Lost Highway was my first; I was SO excited, I saw it twice. Then The Straight Story, Mulholland Drive and Inland Empire since. Have also been fortunate enough to see Blue Velvet and Wild at Heart at special screenings since then.
