Here’s a confession, I was eleven-years-old when the David Lynch directed “Dune” (1984) was released. I didn’t see the original in theaters, but when released on cable I watched it multiple times. Honestly, it wasn’t my favorite story and I haven’t watched again in decades, but I loved the grandeur of it all – and it had Sting!
But I’m hearing this new version, directed by Denis Villeneuve, is fantastic – especially on the big screen – so I’m excited to giveaway tickets for the Philly premiere happening October 18 in Center City.
