Workin' 9 to 5...at BMFI!

May 5, 2018

Bryn Mawr, PA – Over-worked? Under paid? Tired of the sexist egotistical lying hypocritical bigots in your life? Come to BMFI for a cocktail-infused screening of the iconic comedy 9 to 5 on Wednesday, May 16! Admission includes a ticket to the screening, a coffee-inspired cocktail, and a limited edition BMFI 9 to 5 mug!

About 9 to 5: At Consolidated Companies, Violet (Lily Tomlin), Judy (Jane Fonda), and Doralee (Dolly Parton) endure unfair treatment and constant harassment. Following an afternoon of martinis and revenge fantasies, the trio kidnaps their lecherous boss and runs the business their way. For all of 9 to 5’s slapstick energy, its protagonists’ pursuit of equal treatment and pay was timely, arriving the same year that the government issued its first guidelines on sexual harassment. Almost four decades later, 9 to 5 remains hilarious and all too relevant.

“What a rat. What a liar. What a creep.” Belly up with Violet, Judy, and Doralee and throw back a cocktail provided by The Grog Grill! Attendees will receive a limited edition 9 to 5 mug with the price of admission!

9 to 5 will show at Bryn Mawr Film Institute on Wednesday, May 16 at 7:00 pm. Tickets are $15 for general admission and $12 for BMFI members. One mug and one cocktail are included with the price of admission. Drinks will be served starting at 6:00 pm. Tickets are available through BrynMawrFilm.org or at the Box Office during operating hours. BMFI is located at 824 W. Lancaster Ave. in Bryn Mawr, PA.

BMFI is proud to present this special screening in conjunction with the film series “A Girl’s Best Friend: Female Friendship on Film.” Too often, Hollywood limits its depictions of female relationships to romantic rivalries or sparring between frenemies. BMFI is proud to present a cycle of films celebrating women who stick together through love, labor, and the rest of life’s wild twists and turns. Upcoming films in this series include Girlfriends on Wednesday, May 9, and Thelma & Louise, in conjunction with a Cinema Classics Seminar, on Wednesday, May 23
