366 Days at the Drive-In: Day 255

The Date: June 11

The Movie: Un Chien Andalou (1929)

What Is It?: Landmark surrealist short unites two giants in the field specializing in different mediums: filmmaker Luis Buñuel and painter Salvador Dali. Still incredibly shocking (yes, I’m thinking of that eyeball). So good, The Pixies wrote a song about it.

Why Today?: On this day in 1936, the London International Surrealist Exhibition opens at the New Burlington Galleries.
