Capital Celluloid 2012 - Day 223: Sat Aug 11

Beyond The Valley of the Dolls (Meyer, 1970): Rio Cinema, 11.30pm
The Rio is regularly doing the best Saturday late shows in town right now. Here's another excellent choice.

Time Out review:
'With his first movie for a major studio, Meyer simply did what he'd been doing for years, only bigger and better. That's to say, he turned the homely story of an all-girl rock band's rise to fame under their transsexual manager into a delirious comedy melodrama, soused in self- parody but spiked with dope, sex and thrills.' Tony Rayns

Here is the trailer.
