“Spice World”

Cinefamily

611 N. Fairfax, Los Angeles, CA

12:00am

Climb aboard the double decker Spice Bus and get ready for a madcap musical adventure packed with GIRL POWER! Victoria, Emma, Mel B, Geri and Mel C are dressed to kill, and thoroughly prepared to spice up your lives with the group’s fabulous feature film debut (and, sadly, finale — although, who knows?) Sassy, saucy and non-stop fun, Spice World finds our Spice Girls doing a modern day media-obsessed update of The Monkees’ Head, crossed with the Beatles’ A Hard Day’s Night. Bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, the girls engage in escalating English escapades (haunted mansions, extraterrestrial encounters and even more surreal excitement) as they gear up for the biggest performance of their lives at London’s Royal Albert Hall. Bursting with feverish propulsion, a you-just-gotta-join-in soundtrack of mega-hits & mega-moves, plus a supporting cast of top-tier character actors (Alan Cumming, Richard E. Grant, Barry Humphries) and wild cameo appearances, Spice World will have you never giving up on the good times. Dir. Bob Spiers, 1997, 35mm, 93 min. -
