The Hollywood Theatre pays tribute to an unsung comic book hero with SUPERGIRL! This 35mm screening is presented in partnership with Books with Pictures, an inclusive, kid-friendly, intersectional, feminist comic book store on SE 11th & Division.
The follow-up to Christopher Reeves’ SUPERMAN saga, 1984’s SUPERGIRL follows Clark Kent’s surviving Kryptonian cousin Kara Zor-El (Helen Slater) as she comes to earth and assumes an identity as Linda Lee to recover the Omegahedron from Selena (Faye Dunaway), a fabulously evil sorceress who presides over an avant-garde coven from her carnival funhouse. Also starring Mia Farrow, Peter O’Toole, Peter Cook, and Marc McClure reprising his role as Jimmy Olsen, SUPERGIRL has been rediscovered as a camp and cult classic that put women front and center long before the new resurgence of comic book movies even began to think of doing the same.
