Portland’s answer to MST3K, the 7th Planet Picture Show, takes place at 7pm this Thursday, August 5 2010 at Mount Tabor Theater (4811 SE Hawthorne).
Host Will Radik will be joined by Michelle DeFord and Polly Pospisil to comment on the infamous Mariah Carey vehicle, Glitter!
Billie Frank is a shy, young mixed-race girl who is sent away by her alcoholic mother at a very early age. At an orphanage, she befriends Louise and Roxanne. Flash forward to 1983. Billie and her friends are spotted by a record producer, Timothy Walker, who wants them to sing backup for his latest pop-music discovery. But when super DJ Dice hears Billie’s incredible voice, he makes a shady deal with Timothy to get her out of that dead-end situation. Soon, Billie and Dice are making hits inside the studio, and falling in love outside of it. Eventually, the pressure of her newfound celebrity puts too heavy a strain on Billie, forcing her to decide what it is she really wants from Dice, and what she wants for herself.
Show is free, but there’s an entirely optional suggested donation of $5. There’s a bar too, so you must be 21 and over to attend!
Don’t forget to dress glittery!
