The Wild, Wild World of Susan Tyrrell
Forbidden Zone director at the Alamo on Sunday

One of our favorite Oscar-nominated actors, the legendary Susan Tyrrell, will emerge from the shadows Sunday evening to host a screening of the cult-classic Forbidden Zone at the Alamo South Lamar, followed by a showing of her delirious artworks at The Highball. We'll be there, and if you know what's good for you, so will you
That's not a threat, that's a promise: meeting Ms. Tyrrell is a mind-expanding experience in every sense of the weird. Beginning with her storied Hollywood resume, which runs the gamut from John Huston's Fat City (Best Actress in a Supporting Role, 1973) to Andy Warhol's Bad, and from the wickedly warped Night Warning to John Water's Cry-Baby and beyond, "Susu" has seen it, done it, and lived to tell about it all.
Personally, we're anxiously awaiting her rumored autobiography, which promises to be the ne plus ultra of juicy Hollywood-and-vein tell-alls, but until that time we're more than happy to ogle her artwork and enter The Forbidden Zone one more time.
Tickets and information on tomorrow's 7 pm screening can be found here.
