CineVegas minifestival to honor David Lynch

CineVegas just can’t stop honoring David Lynch.

First, officials honored the visionary director with a Vanguard Director Award at the 2004 festival.

And today, CineVegas’ Art House Screening Series launches a two-week Lynch minifest at downtown’s Galaxy Neonopolis multiplex, 450 E. Fremont St.

This weekend’s lineup includes “Lynch,” a new documentary that explores the creative process of the filmmaker behind such works as “Blue Velvet,” “Mulholland Drive” and TV’s “Twin Peaks.” Filmed during a two-year period, the documentary follows Lynch as he works on his most recent movie, “Inland Empire.”

A new 35mm print of “Eraserhead” — Lynch’s surrealistic, unsettling 1977 breakthrough — also will be featured through Feb. 28. Some of the director’s rarely seen short films will screen Saturday and Sunday.

“Inland Empire,” meanwhile, will be shown Feb. 23 and 24.

More information on the CineVegas screening series is available at the festival’s Web site, www.cinevegas.com; for showtimes and online ticketing, click on www.galaxytheatres.com.
