The Olde Village Talking Picture House continues showing new and familiar quality movies you won’t find anywhere else with the mockumentary Drop Dead Gorgeous. It’s about a beauty pageant in a small town in the Midwest that unleashes all the bad things you’d expect from a gaggle of beauties competing for the big prize. Showtime is Sat. Feb. 7 at 4 and 7 p.m. Admission is $2-$5. Free popcorn. Seating is limited to 50.
I’ll quote the press material, because it’s just too good. Contestants include “a non-deaf teen obsessed with communicating in sign language; a Caucasian whose adoptive Japanese parents encourage her to boast of her proud Asian heritage; and the two favorites — poor but noble mortuary make-up artist Amber Atkins (Kirsten Dunst) and rich and evil Becky Leeman (Denise Richards).”
So you’ve seen it before, but isn’t it time you see Drop Dead Gorgeous again?
I thought so.
