Description

As part of Sheena Revolta's GARAGELAND exhibition, we'll be screeing Jim Jarmusch's classic dark-comedy MYSTERY TRAIN.

A seedy hotel in Memphis provides the backdrop for three separate tales, featuring everything from a kitsch-obsessed Japanese couple to a trio of amateur robbers (Joe Strummer, Rick Aviles, Steve Buscemi) who discover the true nature of their relationship during a botched heist.

Linking the stories together is the hotel's eccentric and creepy night clerk (Screamin' Jay Hawkins) as well as the spirit of Elvis Presley.

With music by John Lurie, this is one of the great US independents of the 1980s.
