BFS Presents “Lucky’ — An Homage to Harry Dean Stanton

The Ellen Theatre (17 West Main)

Upcoming Dates & Times

Wednesday, November 1, 2017 at 7:00pm - 8:45pm

Lucky follows the spiritual journey of a 90-year-old atheist and the quirky characters that inhabit his off the map desert town. Having outlived and out-smoked all of his contemporaries, the fiercely independent Lucky (Harry Dean Stanton) finds himself at the precipice of life, thrust into a journey of self-exploration, leading towards that which is so often unattainable: enlightenment.

Acclaimed character actor John Carroll Lynch's directorial debut, Lucky is at once a love letter to the life and career of Harry Dean Stanton and a meditation on morality, loneliness, spirituality, and human connection. Indiewire calls Lucky “A Wise and Wistful Love Letter — Both Fun and Full of Life.” Not rated, the film also stars David Lynch, Ed Begley, Jr. and Tom Skerrit. Rotten Tomatoes gives this 88-minute film a 95% rating!

Reserved seats are $9.75/General; $9.25/Seniors and Students (plus fees). Tickets are available at, by calling the Ellen Theatre at 585-5885, and at the box office two hours before the showing.  “Keep ‘Em Flickering!”
