Directed by Tony Scott

United Kingdom 1983 97 mins. In English

Catherine Deneuve, David Bowie, and Susan Sarandon make a comely vampire ménage à trois in this steamy cult story of the undead from recently deceased director Tony Scott. John and Miriam Blalock (Bowie and Deneuve) are a New York City vampire couple for the ages, but John’s 200+ years are catching up with him. Miriam seeks help from a brilliant doctor studying the aging process (Sarandon), which leads to a memorable, erotically charged seduction scene in the name of eternity. Upon release, David Bowie dryly commented,  “I must say, there’s nothing that looks like it on the market.”

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
