ATHENS, OH – The Athena Cinema announces a special fall film series featuring films directed by David Lynch.

A cinematic auteur of the first rank, Lynch has garnered international praise and multiple awards for films such as ELEPHANT MAN, BLUE VELVET, and MULHOLLAND DRIVE. Lynch’s television series TWIN PEAKS enjoys status as both a critically acclaimed series, and a die-hard fan cult favorite since it first aired in 1990.
