Mommie Dearest

Tomorrow, Thursday, Aug. 26, brings Mommie Dearest, the camp biopic about Joan Crawford and starring Faye Dunaway, in a ravishing, rampaging over-the-top performance. It's one of those timeless camp classics of which we never tire. Next Thursday, Sept. 2, the series ends with Steel Magnolias, the Southern gem with a cast that goes down as smoothly like a mint julep (Dolly Parton, Olympia Dukakis, Shirley McLaine), tossing off one classic expression after another. All films are screened with food and drinks to add to the festivities. Thursday nights at 8 p.m. through Sept. 2, Atlas Performing Arts Center's Sprenger Theatre, 1333 H St. NE. Tickets are $6 each. Call 202-399-7993 or visit atlasarts.org for a full schedule.
