“Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” at the Hipp Cinema

By ALEXANDRA REGUEIRO 

The Hippodrome Cinema cordially invites you to an uneasy night at  Martha and George’s troubled home on Saturday, June 24…  As part of our Cocktails and Classics series, that is.

Outrageous behavior, scandal, Liz Taylor and the Hipp — what more could you ask for? Be a fly on Martha and George’s wall this weekend and peer into their evening of sadistic games, revealing  the couple’s deep, dark secrets.

You won’t want to miss this five-time Oscar-winning classic that still sends chills down its viewers’ spines, even 50 years after it hit theaters. Directed by Mike Nichols, who brought us “The Graduate,” “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” offers explosive performances and is deemed one of the most severely truthful American films of the century.

Get your tickets by visiting thehipp.org/cinema or calling (352)375-4477.
