#TBT at the Laemmle: Tootsie
June 15 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm
“I don’t believe in hell. I believe in UNEMPLOYMENT, but not hell.”
Michael Dorsey is a respected but perfectionist actor. Nobody in New York wants to hire him anymore because he is difficult to work with. After many months without a job, Michael hears of an opening on the popular daytime soap opera, Southwest General, and disguises himself as a woman in order to get a role on the trashy hospital soap.
Michael plays his character as a feisty, feminist administrator, which surprises the other actors and crew who expected Emily to be (as written) another swooning female in the plot. His character quickly becomes a television sensation.
Laemmle NoHo 7
The Laemmle NoHo 7 Theatre opened on Wednesday, December 21, 2011 in the newly revitalized North Hollywood Arts district. The venue features stadium-style auditoriums, comfortable rocker seats with extra leg room, state-of-the-art digital projection and wall-to-wall screens. Also, a first for Laemmle Theatres, the box office is inside the lobby so patrons can order tickets in comfort, protected from the elements. The METRO Red Line brings you within two blocks of the NoHo 7 and with dozens of dining options within walking distance, it’s a great destination for dinner and a movie! If you haven’t been to North Hollywood lately, it’s worth the trip.
