Lynch, Inland Empire Boom in NYC

(Photo: Christopher Campbell)

Knowing what you know about David Lynch's recent standing-room-only incursion into IFC Center, the following details may not rattle or even surprise you. But as a testament to a fan base (of which I mostly consider myself a part) that thinks the filmmaker can do no wrong, a note recently punched over the Reeler HQ transom suggests New York can bring the psychosis better than anyone:

--The film took in $5,510 on its opening day, Wednesday, December 6th, setting a record for a Wednesday opening at the IFC Center
--IFC Center’s three-day weekend gross of $21,379 for Inland Empire set a record for a single-screen engagement at the theater
--The 5-day cume of $31,868 at IFC Center also set a 5-day record for a single-screen engagement at the theater
--All evening shows of the film have sold out hours in advance, with hundreds turned away from capacity screenings and record numbers of advance tickets sold
--Hungry ticket-seekers have offered up to $75 to buy tickets to sold-out shows
--Lynch fans are returning for repeat viewings of the film, with one woman purchasing tickets for three back-to-back shows -- a nine-hour Inland Empire marathon!

And look at that -- Lynch didn't even need to bring the fucking cow. What pushovers!
