The Wolfsonian's Ladies Leading Film SeriesFridays, August 7/14/21/28, 7pm – The Wolfsonian-FIU, 1001 Washington Avenue, Miami Beach

Ladies take the lead in The Wolfsonian’s Ladies Leading Film Series, four summer film screenings inspired by the hard working, trailblazing women featured in the current exhibition, “Women, Art and Social Change: The Newcomb Pottery Enterprise.” Each Friday relax and enjoy the distaff side of life. August 7, “His Girl Friday” (1940) with Rosalind Russell, an ace reporter, and Cary Grant, her dashing ex-husband/editor, kick off the series. August 14, “Adam’s Rib” (1949) – the he-said, she-said classic starring Katherine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy. August 21, “Norma Rae” (1979) – A young Sally Field, a funny, smart and inspiring modern-day heroine, stars in this powerful story about workers’ rights. And August 28, “Nine to Five” (1980) – the hilarious finale of the Ladies Leading Film Series featuring three incredible females – Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin and Dolly Parton. The Wolfsonian also partnered with The Bookstore in the Grove Organic Kitchen to offer delectable box dinners at Ladies Leading film series. Featuring new menu options for each of the four free Friday screenings, the optional boxes (priced at $15 and $20) encourage Miamians to make a night of it—round up your girlfriends, order half-price drinks in The Wolfsonian Café, and sit down with a tasty meal to enjoy four classic movies celebrating women who call the shots and defy the odds, in style. Free and open to the public. Running time: 92 minutes. @wolfsonian
