Free Movie Night @ the Capitol Theater: The Virgin Suicides

February 23 at 7:00 pm 9:00 pm PST

Starting February 1st, TRL cardholders can visit the Olympia or West Olympia library to pick up free tickets to the February 23rd screening of The Virgin Suicides.  Attendees without the special library ticket will be charged normal Olympia Film Society box office prices.

There will be door prizes and a special introduction by film writer and author Hannah Strong. Thank you to the Friends of the Olympia Library!

With this debut feature, Sofia Coppola announced her singular vision, exploring the aesthetics of femininity while illuminating the interior lives of young women. An adaptation of Jeffrey Eugenides’s highly acclaimed first novel, The Virgin Suicides conjures the ineffable melancholy of teenage longing and ennui in its story of the suicides of the five Lisbon sisters, stifled by the rules of their overprotective religious parents—as told through the collective memory of a group of men who were boys at the time and still yearn to understand what happened. Evoking its 1970s suburban setting through ethereal cinematography by Ed Lachman and an atmospheric score by Air, and featuring a magnetic performance by Kirsten Dunst, the film secured a place for its director in the landscape of American independent cinema and has become a coming-of-age touchstone.
