about the film: MERMAIDS
i do believe in life after love, but i don’t believe in life before watching this very funny, very sweet coming-of-age 90s flick…
it’s 1963 and the flax’s are new in town:
cher is rachel and, in the words of her neurotic daughter, the ‘town tramp’ (in the words of me, the fuckin’ hot cher).
winona ryder plays said daughter charlotte, a devout catholic with a questionable love-interest storyline and horny internal monologue (thoughts include: oh, i’m gonna burn in hell for sure. he’s talking about his poor dead mother and I can’t stop wishing his hands were unbuttoning my dress…)
and christina ricci debuts aged 9 as a cute-as-a-button water baby who honestly would have stolen the show if the rest of the cast wasn’t so strong. honestly, nothing will make you love kid ricci more than watching this and then seeing her range of acting skills when you see THE ADDAMS FAMILY which was released only a year later.
to top it off, bob hoskins is in it too as the greatest father figure you could dream of.
MERMAIDS has something for everyone (at the very least the soundtrack bangs), and to fit in with october, it has a halloween scene too. come and dress up with us at the screening!
(warning: no one actually turns into a mermaid)
the actual day of the film
make sure to come by the cinema before the trailers start to get ya drink and have a catch up – and no need to rush off after the film! the bars will stay open once those credits have rolled AND our besties @ the great northern have set up a sweeeeeet deal of 20% off food and 10% off drinks before and after the film for open house ticket holders so pull us up a chair after yea?
confirm u r coming on fb if u believe in mermaids!
shoop shoop out of my life if u aren’t about to press that big orange ticket button
