Join B-Roll cofounder Dee Blew and Sleepy Girl Amy Grindhouse for the Vancouver Arts and Leisure Scene Queen sequel, Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion! This 1997 cult classic stars Lisa Kudrow and Mira Sorvino as two dim-witted friends who concoct elaborate lies about their lives and head to their ten-year high school reunion to impress their classmates.
What could make this better? Two queens providing comedic commentary all the way through, duh. These businesswomen have deducted 16 pounds for their shoes and look so good with blond hair and black roots its like not even funny. Because of that, Dee Blew and Amy Grindhouse have got some business woman specials planned for all you A-groupers after the show, with a performance inspired by the film.
Screening will take place at 7:00 pm in the VAL curated movie lounge, with cocktails and donuts provided by Cartems Donuterie beforehand at 6:00 pm. There is a cash bar with valid 19+ ID. The $10 entry fee gets you discounted entrance into “Subversive presents Jason Kending (Honey Soundsystem)” after the show in the main room at VAL.
One question remains, though: Are you the Mary or the Rhoda?
What: A Screening of the 1997 cult classic Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion accompanied by the totally hilarious heckling of fab queen besties Dee Blew and Amy Grindhouse!
When: March 17th, 6:00 pm-10:00 pm
Where: Vancouver Art and Leisure, 1965 Main Street, Vancouver, BC
Why: Because when you realize your life isn’t what you thought it would be after all of the tortured years of high school loserdom, you buy some killer shoes and get your tush to the reunion so everyone can see you’ve got a business phone and the patent for post-its. Also, there will be donuts.
