Where can you find a damn good cup of coffee … and escape from the Black Lodge?

In virtual reality, via (natch) David Lynch.

Twin Peaks VR” will debut at the director’s Festival of Disruption, held at the Ace Hotel in Los Angeles on October 13-14. Within the virtual experience, players will take the role of Special Agent Dale Cooper and “travel to Glastonbury Grove, only to end up in the puzzling Red Room” and “try to make their way back into the life they left behind.”

(No news on whether the experience will go on about five episodes too long and end on a frustratingly vague note. Oh, sorry, personal review of last year’s Twin Peaks.)

Twin Peaks VR will eventually be available for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, as well as on Steam.

Other events at the Festival of Disruption — where net proceeds benefit the David Lynch Foundation — include exhibits, meditation, talks with Lynch, Francis Ford Coppola, Grace Jones and Carrie Brownstein, and music by RZA, Mercury Rev, Mike Patton, Vic Mensa and more.
