The Hunger at the Rio Theatre


Sunday, October 24, 2021 - 7:30pm


"Nothing human loves forever."

The Rio Theatre's annual deep dive into seasonal, Halloweeny fare continues a screening of Tony Scott's directorial debut, the erotically-charged goth cult-classic vampire romance THE HUNGER. Alongside the always exquisite Catherine Deneuve and Susan Sarandon, the film features David Bowie in one of his most memorably stylish roles.

John (Bowie) is the lover of the gorgeous immortal vampire Miriam (Deneuve), and he's been led to believe that he'll live forever, too. Unfortunately, he quickly deteriorates into a horrible living death, and Miriam seeks a new companion. She soon sets her sights on Sarah (Sarandon), a lovely young scientist, who quickly falls under Miriam's spell. However, Sarah doesn't warm up to the concept of vampirism easily...
