Americana experience

The Americana experience is coming to King House Film Club on Thursday next, October 4th. Admission for non members is €7, with a complimentary glass of wine. A Prarie Home Companion (PG) will be screened at 6 pm and 8.30 pm. It’s a celebrity version of Garrison Keillor’s USA based radio show of the same name. The film takes place during the last live performance of the show as the new radio network owners have sent an axeman (Tommy Lee Jones) to close the show. A fantasy element is thrown in as angel (Virginia Madsen) stalks the theatre. Keillor essentially plays himself. Lily Tomlin and Meryl Streep play the singing Johnson sisters, with Lindsay Lohan as a suicide-obsessed daughter of Streep. Woody Harrelson and John C. Reilly are hilarious as the slightly off-colour singing cowboy duo, Dusty and Lefty. Kevin Kline is a security guard who act as the narrator. Maya Rudolph also appears as a pregnant stage coordinator. Further details can be found at www.kinghouse.ie or telephone Susan at (071) 96 63242
