Our weeklong, eight-film retrospective of the films of pioneer independent filmmaker Jim Jarmusch continues as we present his 1984 minimalist comedic drama Stranger Than Paradise!

Saturday June 4 / 1:30pm
Sunday June 5 / 6:30pm

Jarmusch’s first major feature film, Stranger than Paradise awed global audiences, taking home the prestigious Camera D’or at Cannes and the National Society of Film Critics Award for Best Film.

New York City layabouts Willie (John Lurie) and Eddie (Richard Edson), get by on TV dinners and beer financed by haphazard card-sharking. Willie receives a surprise visit from his Hungarian teen cousin, Eva (Eszter Balint), but just as he warms to her she ditches him for her aunt in Cleveland. Impulsively, Willie and Eddie hit the road to retrieve Eva, after which they plan to head to Florida in search of possibly paradise, possibly nothing. It’s all the same as long as it ain’t boring.

More than just a Godot-esque minimal fable of misspent youth, Jarmusch twists the tropes and conventions associated in new and exciting directions. Don’t miss what has become a benchmark of American independent cinema.

“It’s a unique, indelible and hilarious film, and certainly one of the best of its era.” — Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid

“Like a French New wave film by way of Bela Tarr, directed with a hipster American comic sensibility and an outsider’s fascination with the details of the everyday.” — Sean Axmaker, Turner Classic Movies
