Desperately Seeking Madonna Night
Join us for an evening celebrating the Queen of Pop as we screen 1985’s Desperately Seeking Susan and spin some classic tunes in the Café/Bar before and after the screening!
Desperately Seeking Susan (15) / USA / 1985 / Dir: Susan Seidelman
Madonna’s first major screen role, Desperately Seeking Susan is set in New York, where two women – a bored housewife and a bohemian drifter – are linked by various announcements in the personal column of a newspaper. A cast of hipster extras includes comedian Steven Wright; John Turturro; Michael Badalucco and Laurie Metcalf, Richard Hell, and performance artist Ann Magnuson. The dance-club sequence helped launch the hit ‘Into the Groove’.
