Mommie Dearest Brunch
Featuring Mommie Dearest star Rutanya Alda (“Carol Ann”) In-Person!
Hosted by film critic and writer Walter Chaw.
Enjoy an afternoon with film and stage actress, Rutanya Alda, who played the long suffering maid, Carol Ann, to Faye Dunaway’s Joan Crawford in the camp, cult classic Mommie Dearest. Our friends at Whole Foods Market will be serving up Mom’s Day realness with a brunch fit for Hollywood royalty and stay after the screening of Mommie Dearest for the most tasty scoop. Ms. Alda will be dishing up stories from her upcoming book, Mommie Dearest Diary, about playing opposite Faye Dunaway in the film that Faye won’t talk about. Host Walter Chaw will guide a post-film discussion and Ms. Alda will meet her fans in the theatre lobby after the film.
It will be a slice of old Hollywood, so grab your Mom (or leave her at home if you haven’t finished your Christmas card list) and enjoy a memorable day at the movies.
Stand up brunch begins at noon. Showtime is 1:15p. Post screening reading and conversation to follow film.
Tickets: $15 non-members / $12 members (Denver Film Society & library card holders).
