Part of BAMcinématek

Calling all Twin Peaks freaks: we here at BAMcinématek are so excited for the return of David Lynch’s forever-cool television show in May that we’ve put together the perfect program to get you psyched for season three. If you’ve ever wondered what Laura Palmer and The Beatles have in common, this series is for you.

Dr. Jacoby in West Side Story? Laura Palmer’s dad as a mutant plant monster? In celebration of the return of David Lynch’s avant-visionary soap opera, BAMcinématek revisits some of our favorite cast members’ finest roles, ranging from the iconic to the totally unexpected.
