Dinner and a Movie – Mystery Train - 5:00 PM to 9:00 PM

Enjoy a dinner special at the Nasher Museum Café before the free screening of Mystery Train at 7 PM.  Cafe reservations recommended.

 

Aloof teenage Japanese tourists, a frazzled Italian widow, and a disgruntled British immigrant all converge in the city of dreams – which, in Jim Jarmusch’s Mystery Train, is Memphis. Made with its director’s customary precision and wit, this triptych of stories pays playful tribute to the home of Stax Records, Sun Studio, Graceland, Carl Perkins, and, of course, the King, who presides over the film like a spirit.

 

Jim Jarmusch, 1989, 110 min, USA/Japan, in English, Japanese, and Italian w/ English subtitles, Color.

In 1997, Academy Award-winning actor Morgan Freeman offered to pay for the senior prom at Charleston High School in Mississippi under one condition: the prom had to be racially integrated. His offer was ignored. In 2008, Freeman offered again. This time the school board accepted, and history was made.
