Following the death of David Bowie, Detroit's Redford Theatre will screen two films starring the pop icon on Friday, Jan. 15.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m.for the screening of 1986's family-friendly fantasy Labyrinth.  Video clips featuring Bowie will be presented starting at 7 p.m. with Labyrinth starting at 8 p.m. At 10:30 p.m., the theater will screen the adult-only 1976 sci-fi film The Man Who Fell to Earth in a rare 35mm director’'s cut. 



Admission is $5 per feature. In a press release, organizers say "other surprises are planned," and advise purchasing a ticket ahead of time as they expect the screenings to sell out. As a reminder, their concession counter is cash only.

Bowie died at the age of 69 on Sunday due to liver cancer. Read Detroit musicians' reactions to Bowie's death here.
