Galentine’s Day Special: Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion
+ Skype Q&A with screenwriter Robin Schiff + Prom Party in the Blue Room (free to ticket holders, subject to availability)
A screening of the cult buddy-movie, plus a Q&A plus a prom party – what more do you want?
Dir David Mirkin
With Mira Sorvino, Lisa Kudrow, Alan Cumming, Janeane Garofalo
Romy White (Sorvino) and Michele Weinberger (Kudrow) are two 20-somethings living together in LA, working unambitious menial jobs. Their placid lifestyle is kicked into gear when they realise it’s their 10-year high-school reunion in Arizona. Eager to make an impression on the gang of mean cheerleaders and Romy’s lost teen love, they decide to reinvent themselves as successful businesswomen, complete with snazzy new outfits and a bold claim: they invented post-its. This Galentine’s Day we honour the ultimate gal pal’s cult film, an endlessly quotable ode to friendship and creating your own ‘girl gang.’
