Barbarella

When: Mon., March 26, 8 p.m. 2012

Space and sex appeal are overtly intertwined in 1968's Barbarella, screening during The Light Factory and Actor's Theatre of Charlotte's Cult Movie Mondays. The film — based off of a flashy French comic book by Jean-Claude Forest — stars Jane Fonda as Barbarella, a voluptuous partially-clad blonde space agent of the 41st century traveling to outer space to find a scientist by the name of Doctor Durand Durand (Milo O'Shea) who is sinfully at risk of ending humanity. Along the way she faces some penetrating delays, as she becomes seduced by child patroller (Ugo Tognazzi), an oh-so-buff blind angel (John Phillip Law), and a revolutionary called Dildano (David Hemmings). She also encounters a dominatrix named the Great Tyrant (Anita Pallenberg) and finally the Concierge who tries to destroy her with his organ (yes, an instrument) of pleasure. Like the disclaimer says on the Light Factory's website: Parents, don't be dumb. There's a lot of sexual innuendo in this movie. Ha!
