Go backstage with D. A. Pennebaker's documentary Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, restored just in time for Ziggy's 30th anniversary!
Introduced by the director on November 16

The digitally remastered glam-rock classic Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars brilliantly documents David Bowie in his final performance as gender-bending alter-ego Ziggy Stardust at London's Hammersmith Odeon in 1973.

The inspiration for such recent glam and glitter tributes as Velvet Goldmine and Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Bowie-as-Ziggy belts out such hits as "Changes," "All the Young Dudes," "Oh! You Pretty Things," as well as the Velvet Underground's "White Light/White Heat" and the Rolling Stones' "Let's Spend the Night Together." All the epochal bravado onstage (and mounting tension backstage) is intimately captured by filmmaker D. A. Pennebaker and his camera crew. (91 mins.)

Note: Ziggy Stardust and Down from the Mountain screen consecutively on Thursday-Friday, November 14-15. One ticket buys admission to both films. On Saturday, November 16, one ticket buys admission to Ziggy Stardust. Stay afterwards for a free preview screening of Pennebaker's new film Only the Strong Survive.
