- Since his death, fans of rock icon and movie star, David Bowie have rekindled fascination for his work and life. 

Born David Jones, and known by many names - Ziggy Stardust, Major Tom and The Goblin King, to name a few - Bowie died of cancer days after turning 69 on January 10, 2016. 

In tribute, the historic Tampa Theatre said it will open its doors for a free community movie night screening of Bowie's 1983 fantasy thriller "The Hunger" at 9:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 22.

In it, Bowie plays the husband of a vampire, played by Catherine Deneuve.

His character believes he will also live forever, but instead, he falls victim to the vampire's spell and deteriorates into a state of living death. He seeks the help of a scientist who studies the blood's role in premature aging, but the scientist also falls under the vampire's spell and risks becoming her next victim.

"The Hunger" is rated R. The Tampa Theatre said tickets are not required, but seating will be limited. For more information, visit the Tampa Theatre's Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/TampaTheatre
