"This is a great vehicle for Mira Sorvino's and Lisa Kudrow's chemistry," says FilmCenter programming director Keith Garcia, adding that the flick should be a part of the "cult-film canon."
The evening begins with an awkward prom pre-party in the lobby at 9 p.m., where patrons are encouraged to dress like their high-school-senior selves and bring photo proof of the era. The theater will be selling pizza and adult "punch" for those of age; boys and girls are also invited to dance together as an "awkward prom king and queen" are named. The movie screens at 10 p.m.
Romy and Michele kicks off a month-long celebration of female-fronted comedies, with She-Devil, Troop Beverly Hills and Bridesmaids on tap for the remainder of January. For more information on the Watching Hour or to purchase tickets, $5 to $7, call 303-595-3456 or visit www.denverfilm.org.
