The Man Who Fell To Earth is the next in a series of free movies at the KiMo Theatre, as part of the New Mexico Centennial Film Series.

The KiMo Theatre’s monthly film series puts the spotlight on movies featuring New Mexico, as we would expect in New Mexico centennial year. We are such a star-struck, star-spangled state, in every sense of the words.

The Man Who Fell To Earth is the free movie at the KiMo on Wednesday August 15 at 7 pm.  This is the wonderful 1976 movie starring David Bowie as an alien who comes to planet Earth in search of water for his own dying planet. Not sure he’d get much joy finding water in New Mexico this year (give us more rain!) but it was shot in various New Mexico locations including White Sands National Monument, Albuquerque, Madrid, Jemez Springs, and (of course) Roswell.

It’s a visually stunning and pretty spooky movie. David Bowie is about the coolest alien who ever landed in New Mexico (or anywhere) and the screening is a digitally re-mastered version of the original.

The movie is rated R and from my memory of it, it’s certainly not one for the kids, unless you don’t want them to sleep for the next ten years. 

The KiMo Theatre is located at 423 Central Avenue NW. Take real cash for the Kimo Theatre concessions.
