Photos have just surfaced online of director David Lynch's latest project -- Club Silencio, his Paris nightclub named after the infamous establishment in his film Mulholland Drive. As the above photo shows, the real-life Club Silencio looks to be just as freaky and cool as its cinematic counterpart. Check out a couple of additional pics (one of which is NSFW) after the jump.
These images were taken exclusively by Nowness.com, which describes the club -- located six flights below ground level at 142 rue Montmartre in Paris -- thusly...
"Lynch has conjured a bewitching atmosphere inside the curved network of basement rooms. Accessed through a glittering tunnel leading off the cocktail bar, Silencio has an art deco cinema, reflective dance floor, a Fire Walk With Me-style stage, and a 50s art library featuring a selection of the director's most treasured books from Kafka to Dostoevsky––not to mention the smoking room disguised as a mini indoor forest. During the week-long Carte Blanche festival, Lynch will be programming events at the club, with live shows from the likes of The Kills and Lykke Li, and screenings of his favorite films, from Billy Wilder's Sunset Boulevard to Stanley Kubrick's Lolita."
A new interview with the director can also be found on Nowness.
