Cinema St. Louis honors Oscar nominee Kathleen Turner with a Lifetime Achievement Award at a tribute program at 7 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 24, at the Hi-Pointe Theatre, 1005 McCausland Ave.
Turner, who will be starring in the Repertory Theatre of St. Louis’ production of “High” from Oct. 13-Nov. 7, made a memorable first impression on the moviegoing public with her sexy turn as the femme fatale in “Body Heat” (1981). She quickly established herself as a major star with roles in such films as “Romancing the Stone” (1984), “Prizzi’s Honor” (1985), “Peggy Sue Got Married” (1986) (which earned her an Oscar nomination for Best Actress), “The Accidental Tourist” (1987), and “The War of the Roses” (1989). She also lent her seductive voice to Jessica Rabbit in “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” (1988). Subsequent films include “V.I. Warshawski,” “Serial Mom,” “The Virgin Suicides,” and “Marley & Me.”
Turner has alternated her film work with significant theatrical roles, including Mrs. Robinson in “The Graduate,” Maggie in “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof,” and Martha in “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” She’s also had recurring television roles on “Friends,” “King of the Hill,” and “Californication.”
The tribute program will feature Turner’s personally selected “The War of the Roses,” Danny DeVito’s hilarious, black-comic portrait of a disintegrating marriage, which co-stars Michael Douglas. The evening will include a tribute reel that surveys Turner’s impressive body of work and a career-spanning interview conducted by KMOX’s Mark Reardon.
Tickets for the event are $20. They can be purchased in advance beginning Friday, Oct. 1, during normal theater hours at the Hi-Pointe box office. They’re also available by phone from Cinema St. Louis at 314-289-4153. Tickets will also be available at the box office on the day of the show.
