Support the Girls is a comedy about Lisa Conroy, the last person you'd expect to find in a highway-side "sports bar with curves,"-- but as general manager at Double Whammies, she's come to love the place and its customers. An incurable den mother, she nurtures and protects her girls fiercely--but over the course of one trying day, her optimism is battered from every direction...Double Whammies sells a big, weird American fantasy, but what happens when reality pokes a bunch of holes in it.

The film got 100% on the Tomatometer, with rave reviews from the New Yorker: "The sharp-elbowed humor is laced with aching tenderness, tightrope-tense frustrations over money and love..." etc.

This is the film's opening night, so make sure to get your tickets beforehand for the 7:30pm screening!
