To celebrate Dolly’s return to New Zealand after more than three decades, we’ve organised a special screening of Dolly’s film debut, 9 to 5!

In 9 to 5, Dolly is joined by Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin to tell the story of three women taking revenge on their “sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot” boss.

Judy is a naïve housewife trying out her first job after a divorce. Violet, a feisty, veteran office manager, instructs her on the perils and procedures of office life - and of working for their boss. Meanwhile, the boss’s endless attempts to seduce his happily married secretary, Doralee, lead the entire office to think she's a trollop.

When the boss passes Violet over for yet another promotion, she drowns her sorrows with Judy and Doralee, who disgusts the others with tales of the boss’s overt advances. Later, at Doralee's house, the women dream up hilarious revenge fantasies about killing their boss. When a mix-up leads the women to think they have accidentally poisoned his coffee, they kidnap him to prevent him from blackmailing them or calling the police. The women then use their boss' absence to make some well overdue changes around the office.

Maidment Theatre bar will be open from 5:30pm!

Rated PG - contains coarse language.
