Poison Ivy

Buy Tickets


25th Anniversary!

(1992) dir Katt Shea w/Sara Gilbert, Drew Barrymore, Tom Skerritt, Cheryl Ladd [88 min; 35mm]
This 1992 cult classic features Sara Gilbert as Sylvie, a rich, misanthropic teenager, and Drew Barrymore as Ivy, a sexy badass from the wrong side of the tracks. The two misfits become fast friends, but Ivy wants something more… Though the film features an ‘appropriate’ studio-mandated ending for Ivy, POISON IVY remains a female-centric, empowering milestone for many Gen X-ers.

“Why settle for the usual walk around the exploitation block when Shea offers a wild ride with the top down into uncharted territory?” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
