To book, click a time above.
In Todd Haynes’ latest film The Velvet Underground, he dives deep into the story of the rock ‘n’ roll band led by Lou Reed and John Cale. As much a detailed look into the cultural moment of the 1960s as it is a comprehensive appreciation of the band, The Velvet Underground makes use of split screen, montage, contemporary and past interviews, and archive footage to chronicle the group.
Haynes has visited the music biopic in his films twice before: his glam rock tale Velvet Goldmine (1998) was patterned on the life of David Bowie, while 2007’s I’m Not There was a surreal take on the many facets of folk musician Bob Dylan. In his documentary debut, Haynes revisits an era of art, music and experimentation.
