The retrospective offers hours of entertainment.

Press release: A celebrated actress who has been honored with over 160 international awards - including three Academy Awards - over her four-decade-long film career, Meryl Streep was recently proclaimed "overrated" (via Twitter...) by the soon-to-be leader of the free world. 

The Frida Cinema invites you to decide for yourself: is it possible that the woman who gave cinema such unforgettable characters as traumatized Polish immigrant Sophie Zawistowski, globally-vilified Australian mother Lindy Chamberlain, complex crusading nun Sister Aloysius, and dead-but-not-really aging Broadway legend Madeline Ashton has been, all along, nothing more than an "overrated Hillary flunky?"  Has Meryl Streep been fooling us all along with her mediocrity?

Visit The Frida from February 3rd through 9th as we showcase her apparently overrated talent for perfectly capturing a wealth of foreign accents, fully embodying some of cinema's most complex and heartbreaking characters, and even dancing and singing a song or two.  Complementing this film retrospective, join us for a specially curated art show showcasing over a dozen works by artists across the nation on February 4th from 6pm - 10pm, created in celebration and appreciation of Streep's contributions to the art of cinema.
