Join us for a special conversation with director Richard Shepard, stars Rosanna Arquette and Eszter Balint, and producer Sarah Jackson.

Vidiots invites you to a very special and rare screening of the brand new 2k director’s cut of the offbeat criminal comedy The Linguini Incident.  Lucy (Rosanna Arquette) is a under-paid, under-appreciated waitress at a terminally hip NYC restaurant called Dali. She’s also an aspiring escape artist desperately in need of cash to buy Harry Houdini’s wedding ring. Monte (David Bowie) is the shady but charming new bartender who desperately needs to get married at any cost. Together they join forces— along with Lucy’s best friend, the self-defense bra designing Viv (Eszter Balint)— to rob the popular restaurant, and all the “trend-sucking leeches” who dine there. As one might expect, it doesn’t go as planned, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Funny, romantic and
wonderfully odd, the cult classic The Linguini Incident, co-starring Andre
Gregory, Buck Henry and Marlee Matlin, is “an off the wall treat,” according to the
LA Times. “A contemporary screwball comedy that actually works.” Join us to rediscover this relatively unsung chapter in the book of Bowie.
