Romy & Michele's High School Reunion (25th Anniversary Screening!)
7:00pm - Sunday, May 22, 2022
“Like if there’s a guy in a rowboat going X miles, and the current is going, like, you know, some other miles, how long does it take him to get to town? It was like, who cares? Who wants to go to town with a guy in a rowboat?”
Calling all business women! We are "having a Romy and Michele Day" by marking the 25th Anniversary of ROMY & MICHELE'S HIGH SCHOOL REUNION - one of the most infinitely quotable and frequently requested titles we've had, yet somehow never played - with a prime-time, big screen viewing on Sunday, May 22.
Released in 1997, ROMY & MICHELE'S HIGH SCHOOL REUNION was something of an anomaly of its time - a hilarious, sweet and funny buddy movie starring two... Women (Mira Sorvino and Lisa Kudrow). In the 25 years since its release, its endearing charm and quirky, 90s weirdness has elevated it to total cult-classic status - and it passes the Bechdel test with flying colours (with a side of sparkles, and very chunky heels!).
Ten years after their high school graduation, Romy (Sorvino) and Michele (Kudrow) haven't exactly accomplished everything that they set out to do. Despite their strong friendship, their personal and professional lives are still lacking. When they hear of their upcoming high school reunion, they take it as an opportunity to show their classmates how much they've changed -- first by trying to reform themselves, then by creating a lie that eventually spins out of control. With Janeane Garofalo, Alan Cumming.
"It's a fun, feel good movie about being true to yourself that celebrates how friendship can be the most powerful love a person can hope to find." (Birth.Movies.Death.)
"Cheerful, giddy fun.... Ms. Kudrow and Ms. Sorvino make a fine team, elevating bubble-headedness to new levels of comic ingenuity.” (New York Times)
"Beneath the endless silliness of the movie beats a real heart, and its theme of loyal friendship keeps propping it up every time the thin walls of the story seem about to collapse.” (Los Angeles Times)
