Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind Fans Can Watch the Movie From Bed on a Montauk Beach
“Meet me in Montauk,” Clementine Kruczynski memorably whispers to Joel Barish in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, as his final memory of their relationship is erased. These four words—along with surreal, dream-like scenes from Michel Gondry’s 2004 film, in which the ill-fated lovers (played by Kate Winslet and Jim Carrey) wake up on a snowy beach—are the inspiration behind a special upcoming Eternal Sunshine screening, in which fans get to make like Joel and Clementine and watch the movie in bed, next to the water.
Fittingly called “Meet Me in Montauk,” the day-long event—organized by Alamo Drafthouse and Focus Features—will be held on Saturday, August 12. Participants will receive an afternoon tour of filming locations, and the experience will culminate in an outdoor screening, held under the stars at Gurney’s Resort in Montauk, New York. Guests will lounge on mattresses as they revisit the whimsical tale of Joel and Clementine’s sweet—yet tumultuous—relationship. Since the beach can be chilly at night, attendees are even provided with replicas of Clementine’s orange hoodie.
A limited number of “Meet Me in Montauk” tickets go on sale on Friday, August 4, and will be announced on the Birth.Movies.Death Twitter account. More information about the screening is available online.
