Special Screening of "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls"

For all our Los Angeles readers:

This Thursday you're in for a treat. To remember Roger, the Cinefamily has partnered with Cinespia to host an archival 35mm screening of the Ebert-penned cult classic, "Beyond the Valley of Dolls" featuring a performance by '60s psychedelic rockers The Strawberry Alarm Clock. Some of the "Beyond…" cast and crew, like Meyer bombshell Erica Gavin and groovy music supervisor Stu Philips, will be there. I'll be there too.

And it all happens this Thursday, June 27th at 7:30pm at the the Saban Theatre, a newly restored 1930 Art Deco movie palace, at 8440 Wilshire Blvd in Beverly Hills, CA.
