Cinema Paradiso presents
To launch the new Jim Jarmusch film, Only Lovers Left Alive, which hits cinemas on 11th April and stars Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston, Cinema Paradiso Events are holding an exclusive preview experience on Tuesday 1st April in New York.
The evening will start off at 7pm sharp with a screening of Jim Jarmusch's crypto-vampire love story at the Sunshine Cinema, followed by live performances at Santos Party House where musicians from the film's soundtrack - White Hills, Jozef Van Wissem, Yasmine Hamdan, Zola Jesus and Jim Jarmusch's band SQÜRL - will all play live. Guests are encouraged to wear sunglasses & dress gloves to the event.
The event will also feature installations from Jordan Eagles. Jordan is an artist who has garnered cross-disciplinary public and critical attention for his dynamic and meticulous processes using blood, copper, gauze and resin. His multidimensional works become relics of that which was once living, embodying transformation, regeneration, and an allegory of death to life. His work will be the perfect complement to the evening.
Tickets include entry to both the film screening and the live concert and are priced at $35 + booking fee, available now HERE.
Following the success of previous events held in Cologne, Berlin, Paris and London, this is a special advance screening of the film ahead of its general release in the USA, so tickets are expected to go fast. Following the screening is a specially curated evening of live music from the artists as well as DJs and installations from the film.
Screening starts at 7pm sharp.

Set against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangier, an underground musician, deeply depressed by the direction of human activities, reunites with his resilient and enigmatic lover. Their love story has already endured several centuries at least, but their debauched idyll is soon disrupted by her wild and uncontrollable younger sister. Can these wise but fragile outsiders continue to survive as the modern world collapses around them?
With an all star cast including Oscar winner TILDA SWINTON (The Grand Budapest Hotel, We Need To Talk About Kevin), TOM HIDDLESTON (The Avengers, Thor), MIA WASIKOWSKA (Stoker, Lawless), ANTON YELCHIN (Star Trek Into Darkness) and JOHN HURT (Harry Potter, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE is the apotheosis of American Independent film and underground music combined, from acclaimed director JIM JARMUSCH (Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai and Dead Man).
