BOMBSHELL: THE HEDY LAMARR STORY

JANUARY 19  – 25
BOMBSHELL: THE HEDY LAMARR STORY

What do the most ravishingly beautiful actress of the 1930s and 40s and the inventor whose concepts were the basis of the cell phone and Bluetooth technology have in common? They are both Hedy Lamarr, the glamour icon whose ravishing visage was the inspiration for Snow White and Cat Woman and a technological trailblazer who perfected a radio system to throw Nazi torpedoes off course during WWII. Weaving interviews and clips with never-before-heard audio tapes of Hedy speaking on the record about her incredible life—from her beginnings as an Austrian Jewish emigre to her scandalous nude scene in the 1933 film Ecstasy to her glittering Hollywood life to her ground-breaking, but completely uncredited inventions to her later years when she became a recluse, impoverished and almost forgotten—BOMBSHELL: THE HEDY LAMARR STORY brings to light the story of an unusual and accomplished woman, spurned as too beautiful to be smart, but a role model to this day.
Dir: Alexandra Dean / 2017 / USA / 90 min

SCREENING:  FRI 1/19 6:30pm; SUN 1/21 2:30 PM & 5PM;  TUE 1/23 6:30PM; WED 1/24 4PM; THUR 1/25 6:30PM & 9PM

Tickets available at the box office 30 minutes prior to showtime.

Alexandra relates Hedy Lamarr’s ventures, those onscreen and off, with savvy and narrative snap, fluidly marshaling a mix of original interviews and archival material.
