Showgirls to play at the Art Theatre
2010-01-21 · By Editor
Sometimes even a Golden Raspberry “Razzie” Award winner for “Worst Picture of the Year” transcends to become a beloved cult classic. For every unwatchable flop like 1987’s “Leonard Part 6” or 2002’s “Swept Away”, there’s a veritable gem like 1981’s “Mommie Dearest” or, most recently, 2007’s surprisingly entertaining—for reasons right and wrong—“I Know Who Killed Me.”
The Mother of all Razzie Winners is, of course, 1995’s “Showgirls”, holding a record of 13 Razzie nominations and 7 “wins.” Despite this, to date “Showgirls” is the highest grossing NC17 film of all time, has seen released in numerous DVD formats and editions (including a popular box set), and continues to pull in audiences at midnight screenings across the country.
We are excited to welcome actress Rena Riffel, who stars as Penny/Hope, to this screening – Rena will be taking the Art Theatre stage to introduce the film and engage the audience in a Q&A afterwards!
