Pass the Remote: Lynch vs. Cronenberg, a ‘Star Wars’ summer and a thoughtful documentary on an SF outbreak

A meticulously researched documentary from PBS resurrects a mostly forgotten but important chapter in Bay Area history and gives it more texture and relevance. It along with a clever Roxie three-round boxing match between two of our most formidable filmmakers — David Lynch and David Cronenberg — are just a few of the must-see cinematic events this week. Should simply you be wanting to escape from everything, you’re in luck too. The “Star Wars” saga in all its glory rolls out in San Rafael.
