    It's back to the Sixties as we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Jacqueline Susann's sensational novel Valley of the Dolls.

    The bestselling fiction book of 1966, Valley of the Dolls has sold more than 30 million copies - making it one of the bestselling books of all time (taking #1 spot on The New York Times Best Seller List for 28 weeks).

    Deemed sensational and crude at time of release, the book deals with the sordid lives of three young women seeking fame and fortune in New York City. Susann based the vicious characters and outrgeous scenarios on her own experiences in show business.

    Adapted into an equally shocking film which is now considered a cult/camp classic, Kristian Fletcher Events is inviting you to experience VALLEY OF THE DOLLS on the big screen - with a twist!

    The concept is simple: whenever a character on-screen pops a pill, or says 'doll' or 'pill', you eat a jellybean!
    Follow the prompts and enter Jacqueline Susann's world of booze, drugs and show business.

    Hosted by Kristian Fletcher

    Arrive early for pre-show 60s music and go-go girls!
    Screening 4pm

    Prizes for the best Sixties outfit

    Tickets $19.00 per person
