This First Friday, downtown Phoenix will show a little leg and a whole lot of appreciation for America’s most memorable pinup girl, Bettie Page. The raven-haired vixen will be given tribute with a classic car show featuring early atomic American hot rods, a photo booth by Allons-y Media, a DJ set from former New Times music editor Jason P. Woodbury (who, full disclosure, is married to culture editor Becky Bartkowski), and Bettie Page merchandise from Zia Records. The festivities will kick off the week-long screening of the documentary Bettie Page Reveals All. Directed by Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Mark Mori, this film exposes one of the most iconic sex symbols in pop culture with a never-before-heard narrative from the late star.
The Bettie Page Celebration begins at 6 p.m. Friday, December 6, at the FilmBar, 815 North Second Street. Admission to the classic car show, photo booth, and DJ set is free. Tickets are $9 for the 6:30 p.m. and 9 p.m. screenings of Bettie Page Reveals All. Visit www.thefilmbarphx.com or call 602-595-9187.
