2 Comments on Sunday Cinema: The Lathe of Heaven (1980)

  1. I rented this from Netflix last year. It’s not bad for an early 80’s flick. The remake with Lisa Bonet wasn’t as good. But I think it’s worth it to see both.

  2. Not merely produced by PBS, but by Dallas, TX affiliate KERA. Haber’s institute is Dallas City Hall. Lots of local shots. I remember watching this on its original air date on TV here. Good stuff.
