Story of Linda Lovelace, who is used and abused by the porn industry at the behest of her coercive husband, before taking control of her life.  Starring Amanda Seyfried.

In 1972—before the internet, before the porn explosion—Deep Throat was a phenomenon: the first scripted pornographic theatrical feature film, featuring a story, some jokes, and an unknown and unlikely star, Linda Lovelace. Escaping a strict religious family, Linda discovered freedom and the high-life when she fell for and married charismatic hustler Chuck Traynor. As Linda Lovelace she became an international sensation—less centerfold fantasy than a charming girl-next-door with an impressive capacity for fellatio. Fully inhabiting her new identity, Linda became an enthusiastic spokesperson for sexual freedom and uninhibited hedonism. Six years later she presented another, utterly contradictory, narrative to the world—and herself as the survivor of a far darker story.

We'll meet in front of the theater at 7:15 and see the 7:30 showing.  You can buy tickets beforehand here.

We will meet for dinner beforehand at Inka Mama Peruvian at 5:45 p.m. It's at 3930 S. Bristol (on the corner of Bristol and Sunflower in the parking lot next to the theater).  Let us know in comments if you will be joining us for dinner!
