It was a box-office flop up at the time, but in the 20 years since Deborah Kaplan and Harry Elfont’s Josie and the Pussycats debuted in cinemas it has gone on to become a beloved cult classic championed by everyone from U2 to Doja Cat.
Reimagining the Archie Comics characters for a deeply satirical look at the music industry, upstart girl group The Pussycats discover a conspiracy to deliver subliminal messages through popular music.
Join best-selling author and screenwriter Maria Lewis – and host of the limited podcast series Josie and the Podcats – for this special watch party with behind-the-scenes info, exclusive interviews and some very special guests.
