Movies Out Loud brings the needles to 'Valley of the Dolls' at the Abbey, you bring the pills


Oh, Watermark and Orlando Fringe – you had us at “she took the blue pills.” But then you went and added the green ones and the yellows, and you gave us hosts Jeff Jones and Michael Wanzie to moderate this screening of everyone’s favorite tale of 1960s show business fails, Valley of the Dolls. Even though you know it’s bad to take liquor with those pills, honey, get to the Abbey early and get yourself a drink from the bar, and get ready for a raucous screening of one of the great cinema classics of our time (based, of course, on one of the great novels of our time, written by Jacqueline Susann). We hear the last Movies Out Loud (a screening of Showgirls) was insane – the house was packed and the evening as full of inappropriate jokes about having sex in pools. With this campy cult-classic film as the focal point of the evening, we can only imagine how much more over-the-top it’s going to be. Sparkle, Neely, sparkle!
