As part of the Hollywood Theatre’s Feminist March programming, KSMOCA’s Harriet Tubman Center for Expanded Curatorial Practice is proud to co-present MATILDA! Stay after the movie for a thoughtful, hilarious, and critically rigorous panel conversation with the Tubman Center’s curatorial middle schoolers.
Based on Roald Dahl’s classic story, MATILDA (1996) follows the titular wunderkind (Mara Wilson), a young girl gifted with telekinesis but trapped in a home with dirtbag parents (Rhea Pearlman and Danny DeVito) who just don’t understand. And when Matilda finds herself face-to-face with evil school principal the Trunchbull (Pam Ferris), she and her earnest teacher Miss Honey (Embeth Davidtz) will have to team up to fight for the life they deserve! Co-starring Paul Reubens and directed by Danny DeVito, MATILDA is a magical classic for all ages.
Guest passes accepted.
