CinéWilde presents Steel Magnolias
This fall, CinéWilde celebrates a beloved star-studded classic: “Steel Magnolias,” the 1989 comedic drama based on the 1987 play of the same name.
Set in Louisiana, “Steel Magnolias” follows a group of devoted female friends who convene at the local beauty parlor as they prepare for a young woman’s wedding day (and later struggle with her decision to have a child). The film’s all-star cast includes Sally Field, Dolly Parton, Shirley MacLaine, Daryl Hannah, Olympia Dukakis, Julia Roberts (who received an Oscar nomination for her performance), Tom Skerritt and Dylan McDermott.
If you’ve seen “Steel Magnolias,” then you already know why it’s been translated into 17 languages and performed around the world. And if you haven’t, come experience this heartwarming hit with your closest friends.
Join us before the film for a pre-show talk with local artist Joel Ferrell, the director behind the upcoming Tony Award Winning Dallas Theatre Center production of the play. And afterwards, stick around as we enjoy some southern-themed cocktails at the theatre’s bar.
