We will be attending the 4:20 showing of "Holy Motors" - a fantasy drama from France - at the Varsity Theater. Here is a description from rottentomatoes: "Mesmerizingly strange and willfully perverse, Holy Motors offers an unforgettable visual feast alongside a spellbinding -- albeit unapologetically challenging -- narrative."
Here is a more detailed description from the Landmark Theatres' website:
Over the course of a single day, Monsieur Oscar (Denis Lavant) travels by limousine around Paris to a series of nine "appointments," transforming into new characters or incarnations at each stop. Fetched in the morning by Céline (Edith Scob, Eyes Without a Face), his trusty chauffeur on this surreal journey, Oscar begins the day as a captain of industry. Then he becomes a gypsy crone, begging for spare change on a bridge over the Seine. Inside a digital production facility, he's a ninja warrior transformed by cutting-edge technology into a reptilian sex god. Next he's a gibberish-spewing troglodyte who kidnaps a fashion model from a photo shoot in Père Lachaise cemetery. Then he's the melancholy father of a teenage daughter, followed by a shadowy assassin sent to kill his own doppelgänger, and finally a thwarted lover revisiting a flame from his past next to the Pont-Neuf. Monster movie, film noir, romantic drama, musical, crime thriller, futuristic sex fantasia... Holy Motors is a ravishing, shape-shifting, fever dream of becoming, unraveling and starting all over again.
Here is the trailer for this film:

Meet me at the lobby of the Varsity Theater at 4:05 (i.e., 15 minutes prior to show time) . I am an Asian male who wears glasses and will probably be wearing a hat of some type (khaki beret, black rain hat, multi-color African cap). There is a head shot of me in the photo section of my profile so you can for whom to look. My cell phone,[masked], will be on until 4:20.
At the conclusion of the film (this means after all of the credits have been shown) there will be an optional food and beverage stop at a nearby cafe or restaurant. Meet me outside the theater if it is not raining, and in the lobby if it is raining.
