'Welcome to the Dollhouse'
(FILM) Todd Solondz's hilariously caustic
portrayal of the humiliations of junior-high-school life won the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance. The film's geeky heroine, Dawn "Wiener Dog" Wiener, attempts to navigate her way through puberty
while enduring one indignity after another from her peers, family, and teachers. As always at Central Cinema, you can enjoy snacks and beer
while watching. (Central Cinema, 1411 21st Ave, 686-6684. 7:15 and 9:30 pm, $5, late show 21+. Runs July 26–30.
