(Gregg Araki, US, 1997, 83 min, in English)
“L.A. is, like, nowhere…everybody who lives here is lost.“
Nowhere, the final installment in Gregg Araki’s Teen Apocalypse Trilogy, is a totally engrossing, violent, cinematic rave. Taking place over one bright Los Angeles day, moody teen Dark (James Duval) hangs with his bisexual girlfriend Mel (Rachel True) and longs for shy twink Montgomery (Nathan Sexton) while preparing to go to a wild party later that night.
Throughout the afternoon, Dark and his circle of friends — played by a huge cast of iconic actors of the late ‘90s like Heather Graham, Ryan Phillippe, Christina Applegate, and Guillermo Diaz — do drugs, make out, dodge their parents, and lounge around their intricately stylized rooms all while being stalked by an alien. The end of the world seems nigh, but why should that get in the way of a good time?
Dubbed by the director as “Beverly Hills 90210 on acid,” Nowhere is a frenetic and psychedelic ode to teen angst and the alienation of young adulthood. Initially released to lukewarm reviews, in the two decades since, Nowhere has attained cult status for its prescient perspective on queer identity and vibrant production design. Only officially out on VHS in the United States with low-quality rips floating around on the internet, Nowhere has finally gotten the 4K treatment with a new sound mix that makes the horny, colorful movie crisper than ever.
NWFF patrons will be required to wear masks that cover both nose and mouth while in the building. Disposable masks are available at the door for those who need them. We are not currently checking vaccination cards. Recent variants of COVID-19 readily infect and spread between individuals regardless of vaccination status.

Ticketing, concessions, cinemas, restrooms, and our public edit lab are located on Northwest Film Forum’s ground floor, which is wheelchair accessible. All doors in Northwest Film Forum are non-motorized, and may require staff assistance to open. Our upstairs workshop room is not wheelchair accessible.
The majority of seats in our main cinema are 21″ wide from armrest to armrest; some seats are 19″ wide. We are working on creating the option of removable armrests!
We have a limited number of assistive listening devices available for programs hosted in our larger theater, Cinema 1. These devices are maintained by the Technical Director, and can be requested at the ticketing and concessions counter. Also available at the front desk is a Sensory Kit you can borrow, which includes a Communication Card, noise-reducing headphones, and fidget toys.
The Forum does NOT have assistive devices for the visually impaired, and is not (yet) a scent-free venue. Our commitment to increasing access for our audiences is ongoing, and we welcome all public input on the subject!
If you have additional specific questions about accessibility at our venue, please contact our Patron Services Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our phone number (206-329-2629) is voicemail-only, but we check it often.
Made possible due to a grant from Seattle Office of Arts & Culture, in partnership with Sensory Access, our Sensory Access document presents a visual and descriptive walk-through of the NWFF space. View it in advance of attending an in-person event at bit.ly/nwffsocialnarrativepdf, in order to prepare yourself for the experience.
