TEA WITH THE DAMES OPENING AT THE CINEMA ART THEATER
Starting on October 19, the Rehoboth Beach Film Society’s Cinema Art Theater will present TEA WITH THE DAMES, a delightfully bawdy documentary that lets the viewer sit in on hilarious and honest conversations between close friends of 60 years—who happen to be four of the greatest British actors of their generation.
Dame Maggie Smith, Dame Judi Dench, Dame Eileen Atkins, and Dame Joan Plowright hereby invite you to join them for a weekend in the country as they catch up with one another, reminisce, and share their candid, delightfully irreverent thoughts on everything from art to aging, to love, to a life lived in the spotlight. Bursting with devilish wit and whip-smart insights, TEA WITH THE DAMES is a remarkable opportunity to spend time in the company of four all-time greats—with scores of iconic performances, decades of wisdom, and innumerable Oscars®, Tonys®, Emmys®, and BAFTAs® between them—up close and unfiltered. [2018, UK, Runtime: 94 minutes, Not Rated].
“The assembled dames are so smart, witty and strong-willed, it’s a wrench to have to part company from them at the end of the film,” writes Leslie Felperin of “TheHollywoodReporter.com.” Dave White of “TheWrap.com” writes that the film, “is as cozy and satisfying as its title suggests.”
Screening times are 4:00 pm on Friday (Oct 19), 7:00 pm on Saturday (Oct 20), 4:00 pm on Sunday (Oct 21), 4:00 pm on Wednesday (Oct 24), 4:00 pm and 7:00 pm on Thursday (Oct 25). Admission for CAT: THIS WEEK films is $8 for members and $11 for future members. Customers are encouraged to purchase tickets online. If seats are available, tickets can be purchased at the theater, starting 30 minutes prior to each screening.
