William Patrick Corgan is going from Smashing Pumpkins to smashing box offices, thanks to the release of his brand new film Pillbox.
The movie is soundtracked by Billy’s Rick Rubin-produced and James Iha-featuring new solo record Ogilala, and he’s just announced a one-off exclusive Australian screening of the whole thing.
The Aussie premiere will go down at Sydney’s Golden Age Cinema next Friday, 27th October from 5:30pm.
Inspired by a hero’s journey, Pillbox was written and directed by Corgan himself, alongside longtime collaborator Linda Strawberry.
“I thought it was a different approach to listening to an album, to watch it in essence with a related, albeit non-linear, silent movie,” the Pumpkinhead says of the flick. “Art is art. And together the two pieces create a work unto itself.”
Tickets to the intimate screening are super limited, and all fans who attend will also score a limited edition movie poster for their troubles.
Catch all the details, alongside the film’s trailer, below.
