That’s right! Following last night’s sold out screening of the 1985 who-done-it ensemble comedy Clue at Avalon Theater, we’ll be starting 2022 by showing a 1995 coming-of-age comedy that also happens to have the word “Clue” in its name. Tickets to our Wednesday, January 26 screening of Clueless are ON SALE NOW!
Loosely based on Jane Austen’s novel Emma (if it took place in mid-1990s Beverly Hills, that is), Clueless follows affable and affluent teen Cher Horowitz (played by Alicia Silverstone in a breakout and career-defining role) as she navigates the high school hierarchy and broadens her world view. The Amy Heckerling-written/directed film also features Stacey Dash, Paul Rudd—looking remarkably similar to the way he does today—and the late, great Brittany Murphy. The low-budget movie grossed more than $56 million during its theatrical run en route to becoming a cult classic that’s still regularly quoted and widely enjoyed today.
Tickets to the 6:30 p.m. screening are $11. As always, the screening is sponsored by Lakefront Brewery, Educators Credit Union, and Awkward Nerd Events. We hope to, like, totally see you at Avalon Theater on January 26. As if you would miss this.
