This event SOLD OUT in mere minutes! Stay tuned for the next one. Join me on Wednesday, April 10th, 2019 at 7:30PM as @hollywood_heritage and The Hollywood Foreign Press Association present "At Home And On The Road With Gypsy Rose Lee" to kick-off the 2019 @turnerclassicmovies Film Festival.
When your mother is the world’s most famous #striptease artist, your life is far from ordinary! As soon as he was old enough to hold a camera, Erik Lee Preminger was set with the task of recording his mothers remarkable life. Whatever adventure Gypsy embarked upon, Erik was there with his camera. These home movies have been edited by Erik into a film of Gypsy's stage performances, behind the scenes of her movie sets, life at home in their New York mansion, a tour through Europe in her Rolls Royce with her numerous pets and rare footage of her interacting with celebrities and stars. Mr. Preminger will provide live narration during the screening.
Our special guest will be Dita Von Teese, who grew up fascinated by the Golden Age of Cinema, pin-up imagery, and vintage lingerie. This naturally blond, mid-western girl transformed herself into a glamour girl like those she admired. Performing striptease since 1992, she is the biggest name in #burlesque in the world since Gypsy Rose Lee and is credited with bringing the art form back into the spotlight with a new sense of elegance and sophistication.
Following the screening, Ms. Von Teese will participate in a Q&A with Preminger, who will also be signing copies of his book "Gypsy & Me". This once-in-a-lifetime special event is sure to sell-out and the museum has a maximum capacity of 120 people, so be sure to reserve your tickets early to avoid disappointment!
