Fresno State’s CineCulture film series and Fresno Filmworks present “Lucky” at 5:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 13, at the Tower Theatre (815 E. Olive Ave.).

“Lucky” follows the spiritual journey of a 90-year-old atheist and the quirky characters that inhabit his off-the-map desert town. Having outlived and out-smoked all of his contemporaries, the fiercely independent Lucky finds himself at the precipice of life, thrust into a journey of self-exploration, leading towards that which is so often unattainable: enlightenment.

Acclaimed character actor John Carroll Lynch’s directorial debut, “Lucky” is at once a love letter to the life and career of Harry Dean Stanton as well as a meditation on mortality, loneliness, spirituality and human connection. Stanton passed away last month at the age of 91.

“Lucky” is 88 minutes in length and is not yet rated. Closed captioning and other assistive listening services are not available for this film. Tickets are $10 general and $8 for students and seniors. Visit for full details. INFO: Dr. Mary Husain at or visit the CineCulture website. See original press release.
