Few films enjoy the same level of gonzo mystique as Paul Verhoeven’s dark camp explosion Showgirls, and fewer still have earned it. Don’t miss this one with an audience!
Nomi (Elizabeth Berkley) arrives in Las Vegas with only a suitcase and a dream of becoming a top showgirl. She quickly befriends Molly (Gina Ravera), who works at the high-profile Stardust Hotel, and lands a job at a seedy strip club. A chance meeting with Cristal (Gina Gershon), the Stardust’s marquee dancer, and her powerful boyfriend, Zack (Kyle MacLachlan), brings Nomi one step closer to realizing her dream. But, as she ascends to the top, Nomi begins to wonder if it’s all worth it.
“A film of thunderous oafishness that gives adult subject matter the kind of bad name it does not need or deserve.” – LA Times
“One of the great American films of the [1990s].” – Jacques Rivette
