To mark the release of Baz Luhrmann’s showstopping biopic of Elvis, Tyneside Cinema is delighted to present a season of films inspired by the lingering spirit of The King.

From look-alikes on the streets of Las Vegas and Memphis to the people that take embodying the Elvis spirit way, way too far, these films are the ultimate tribute to the weird and wonderful ways that The King lives on.

Featuring films from Jim Jarmusch and David Lynch, the origin of the Elvis Lives myth, stories of impersonators gone mad, and even The King battling ancient Egyptian evil, journey with us into the weird and wonderful cinematic world that is The Spirit of Elvis.
