Kathleen Turner Will Be At The Plaza Classic Film Festival For Two Screenings Of Her Movies
The Plaza Classic Film Festival is bringing a huge movie star to town for two days of the festival. Kathleen Turner, who famously voiced Jessica Rabbit in the classic 80s movie, Who Framed Roger Rabbit.
Turner will be appearing for an on-stage interview before a showing of Peggy Sue Got Married, directed by Francis Ford Coppola and released in 1986. She will be onstage at the Plaza Theater on Friday, August 4, at 7:00 p.m. She will then hit the Plaza stage again the next day before the screening of another 80s classic she starred in, Romancing the Stone, at 3:30 p.m. Saturday, August 5. You'll have the chance to get Turner's autograph on Saturday, August 5, from 1 to 2:30 p.m. She will be at a reception at the Foundation Room, 333 N. Oregon Street, across from San Jacinto Plaza in the Mills Building.
If you haven't seen Peggy Sue Got Married, it is about Peggy Sue Bodell who faints at her high school reunion but comes to when she was just about to graduate high school. She knows what her future holds in store for her and tries to change things, but ends up making a lot of the same mistakes that led her to being an unhappy 40-something housewife in the future. It's a lot of fun.
She plays a romance novelist in Romancing the Stone, the second movie that will be shown at the festival. Her character is nothing like the romantic heroines in her books, but she gets thrown into an adventure after her sister is kidnapped by a ruthless Colombian cop. Michael Douglas is the soldier-of-fortune who helps save her. Another really fun 80s silly movie.
