9:00 PM: Screening of My Best Friend's Wedding
Julianne Potter (Julia Roberts) and Michael O'Neal (Dermot Mulroney) are childhood best friends. They stayed friends even after she dumped him in college. And, they made a pact. If both of them were single at 28, they'd get married. Now, they're almost 28, but he's just announced that he's marrying a gorgeous 20-year-old named Kimberly (Cameron Diaz).
Julianne's plan, despite the warnings of her gay friend George (Rupert Everett)? Smile, follow along and destroy from within.
Originally released in 1997, My Best Friend's Wedding is a romantic comedy that subverts the usual conventions of the genre and introduces us to complicated, but irresistible characters.
Presented as part of Ottawa's Centretown Movies, this screening of My Best Friend's Wedding is pay-what-you-can. Neither alcohol nor smoking is allowed on site. Please bring your own chair.
