Submitted by Baby Lame
MOMMIE DEAREST: HATE-ALONG dir Frank Perry, 1981 presented by Baby Lame at Rio Cinema (16 APR 15:30).
Join TEAM JOAN or TEAM CHRISTINA DARLING and get ready for this outrageous camp classic as you’ve never experienced it before, as mother and daughter battle it out in a riotous and immersive bitchfest to the DEATH!
The film responsible for destroying Faye Dunaway’s movie career, MOMMIE DEAREST is a deliciously dark and hugely quotable biographical film, following the batshit crazy life of Joan Crawford (Faye Dunaway) as she takes in two orphans. At first their unconventional family seems happy, but after Joan’s attempts at romantic fulfilment go sour and she is fired from her contract with MGM studios, her cruel and abusive behaviour towards daughter Christina becomes even more psychotic… OH YEAH – SHITS ABOUT TO GO DOWN!
Baby Lame knows a thing or two about immersive cinema events, her annual SHOWGIRLS: LIVE! was nominated for ‘Best Live Event’ at the Screen International Awards. Her ‘DEATH BECOMES HER’ bitch-along event played to sold out audiences at London’s BFI.
