Can you believe it’s been 30 YEARS since you watched Steel Magnolias for the first time?
Arguably the world's greatest 'chick flick', it has to be one of our favourite movies of all time at New Idea Food - and if we don’t go through a box of Kleenex every time we watch it then it’s a damn miracle!
But to think that it’s been THREE long decades since we fell in love with Shelby, M'Lynn, Truvy, Ouiser, Annelle, and Clairee - not to mention watched that gut-wrenching post-funeral scene - is just mind-blowing, right?
Well we have news for all you fans out there. It’s the 30-year anniversary in May and plans are reportedly already afoot to bring it back in theatres for a special anniversary screening.
You’re going to want to grab all the tissues, popcorn and girlfriends you can find for it, because it’s going to be spectacular.
The idea for an anniversary screening first originated in the US with theatres all over the country announcing plans for the encore return to cinemas in May.
Now the movement has gone global, and it looks like it’s coming to Australia as well! We’ll keep you posted as more details come to light, but in the meantime keep you May diary very clear!
