To help awaken those traumatic middle-school memories, Garcia is asking everyone to take a page from the film, or their own awkward history, and come to the screening in their awful, unfortunate best. “We’re inviting guests of the Watching Hour to come dressed as [protagonist] Dawn Wiener in what we like to call ‘Night of a Thousand Wieners,’” he says. “Whether it’s dressing just like her or dressing like your freaky best, we’re going to celebrate everyone’s unfortunate geek.”
Welcome to the Dollhouse shows at 10 p.m. tonight and tomorrow at the Sie FilmCenter, 2510 East Colfax Avenue. Tickets are $8, or $6 for Denver Film Society members. For more info or to buy tickets, visit denverfilm.org.
