Crouch End Arthouse screens Bowie tribute movie for charity

David Bowie’s classic movie The Man Who Fell to Earth will be screened at the Crouch End Arthouse to raise money for Cancer Research.

The charity screening is at 11:30am on Sunday.

Tom Barrie, from the Arthouse said: “It is a classic film and all profits will go to Cancer Research Uk - our way of paying tribute to David Bowie.”

In the movie, Thomas Jerome Newton is the man who falls to earth. He comes from an alien planet which is slowly dying from a lengthy drought, and has left his wife and two children in the hope of finding a solution on Earth.

Aided by lawyer Oliver Farnsworth (Buck Henry), Thomas uses his knowledge of advanced technology to create profitable inventions. While developing a method to transport water, Thomas meets Mary-Lou (Candy Clark), a quiet hotel clerk, and begins to fall in love with her. Just as he is ready to leave Earth, Thomas is intercepted by the U.S. government, and his entire plan is threatened.
