$15 for general admission, $12 for BMFI members
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. More than three 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!
