April 21 is Robert Smith's birthday and there's no better to way to celebrate this most hallowed day on the goth calendar than with a screening of The Cure in Orange. Filmed at the Roman Theatre of Orange in 1986, the concert film captures the legendary British group a year after the release of the now-classic album The Head on the Door and just months after the retrospective singles compilation Standing on a Beach. This is The Cure in their prime, with Smith and the gang performing fan favorites such as "Charlotte Sometimes" along with then-current hits like "The Walk" and "Close to Me," on an ancient, smoke-filled stage. While The Cure in Orange is the quintessential concert film for this band, it's been out of print for ages. Fortunately, Cinematic Void has a 35mm print. They also have Lol Tolhurst, former keyboardist for The Cure, for a Q&A. He'll also be signing copies of his memoir Cured: The Tale of Two Imaginary Boys.
