Proceeds from this screening will help raise early literacy rates of children in our neighbourhood!

Presented in partnership with the Eva Rothwell Centre and Dolly Partons Imagination Library.

The Eva Rothwell Centre is a non-profit community organization located in Hamilton's North End. They are proud to host Dolly Parton's Imagination Library as one of their initiatives to help raise early literacy rates, prepare children for Kindergarten, and instill a love of reading at a young age. They are currently focused on enrolling children who live within the L8L postal code, with a goal of expanding the program throughout Hamilton, through help from community donations and generous partners.

ABOUT THE FILM:

Office satire about three female secretaries who decide to get revenge on their tyrannical, sexist boss by abducting him and running the business themselves. The trio, one of whom has been passed over for promotion because she is a woman, spend a night together having drug-induced fantasies of killing the slave-driving chauvinist. One of them panics the following day when she suspects she really has poisoned the tyrant.


“Nine to Five is a good-hearted comedy that will win a place in film history, partially because it contains the movie debut of Dolly Parton.

“Parton contains so much energy, so much life and unstudied natural exuberance that watching her do anything in this movie is a pleasure.

“The movie exists in the tradition of 1940s screwball comedies. It's about improbable events happening to people who are comic caricatures of their types, and, like those '40s movies, It also has a dash of social commentary.

“The message in this case has, to do with women's liberation and, specifically, with the role of women in large corporate offices. Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin and Dolly Parton all work in the same office.

“The villain is the boss himself. Played by Dabney Coleman (of "Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman"), he's a self-righteous prig with a great and sincere lust for Dolly Parton. She's having none of it.
Dolly Parton on the screen simply seems to be having a great time, ready to sweep everyone else up in her enthusiasm, her concern, her energy. It's some show.” - Chicago Sun Times
