Back in the day, it wasn’t just a boy’s club on the boob tube. The
young women of America had their programming needs catered to as well.
With shows starring powerful female heroes peppered with toy
commercials pushing physically correct baby dolls (!), fashion
accessories and colorful, girlie cereal – there was plenty for the
younger, fairer gender to latch onto.
Re-Run Theater presents
Girl Power, a celebration of this odd chapter in Womyn’s herstory.
Showcasing a menagerie of the flashiest, coolest and most bizarre
moments in female children’s-centric entertainment. We will feature one
episode each from three decades: Josie and the Pussycats in Outer
Space from the 60's (on glorious 16mm), the OTHER awesome girl rock band
Jem and the Holograms from the 80's and a VERY RARE episode of the live
action 1970s Wonder Woman starring the incredible Miss America herself
Lynda Carter, and guest starring teen heart throb Leif Garret. Presented
on 16mm film.
So come on down! You know the drill: Jump into
your Underoos, pour a bowl of Rainbow Brite cereal and a glass of wine
and relive your childhood in the comfort of your favorite theater!
