For the opening night of the cult film “Labyrinth” on Friday, May 20th, Logan Theatre is having a David Bowie best-dressed contest and party. Celebrating its 30th anniversary this June, the 1986 “Labyrinth” was Jim Henson’s last film before his death in 1990 and one of David Bowie’s most memorable movie roles as Jareth, the Goblin King.
Choosing which era of Bowie to represent is endless. You have the early years of “The Man Who Sold the World,” the nasty white-boy soul “The Thin White Duke” to the water-seeking alien of “The Man Who Fell to Earth.” That is not to mention all the characters from Bowie songs like Major Tom from “Space Oddity” or film and television such as Nikola Tesla from “The Prestige” or Phillip Jeffries from “Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me.”
Jennifer Zacarias, marketing director of Logan Theatre says, “We are excited and expecting glam, rock and fabulousness! We have prizes for the best dressed that pay homage to the late David Bowie, of which includes Pitchfork tickets.”
The participant with the best inspired Bowie look will win a pair of Pitchfork Music Festival tickets. The competition starts at 8:30 pm, and the film will begin at 11:00 pm this Friday.
