While the film world continues to mourn the passing of Roger Ebert, you can celebrate his unique sensibility with a movie he actually wrote. ---
This weekend -- Friday, April 12 and Saturday, April 13--the Tower Theatre presents midnight screenings of Russ Meyer's 1970 sexploitation tale Beyond the Valley of the Dolls. Featuring the Roger Ebert screenplay that included the legendary, Austin Powers-tributed line "This is my happening, and it freaks me out!", the NC-17-rated Dolls finds the goofy movie love that was as much a part of Ebert's critical writing as his deep knowledge of classic film history.
Both screenings are free to the public on a space-available basis.
