STEEL MAGNOLIAS ADDED TO STELLAR LINEUP AT TARGET PRESENTS AFI NIGHT AT THE MOVIES

More Tickets Released for Star-Studded Event on April 24

SHIRLEY MACLAINE AND SALLY FIELD REUNITE TO CO-PRESENT AND CELEBRATE MACLAINE’S BIRTHDAY WITH FANS OF BELOVED FILM 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, APRIL 17, 2013, LOS ANGELES, CA – The American Film Institute (AFI) announced today that STEEL MAGNOLIAS has been added to the classic movie lineup of screenings for the special one-night-only event, Target Presents AFI Night at the Movies. 2012 AFI Life Achievement Award recipient and Oscar®-winning actress Shirley MacLaine and Oscar®-winning actress Sally Field will reunite to co-present the film, which will screen along with 12 other films, on Wednesday April 24 at the ArcLight Hollywood.  Adding to this unique night, audience members will join Field and AFI to celebrate MacLaine with a birthday song prior to the screening. Tickets for STEEL MAGNOLIAS go on sale today at 10:00 a.m. (PT).

“What better way to celebrate… spending the evening with people who love the movies and friends who make them,” commented MacLaine.

STEEL MAGNOLIAS brings together several generations of spirited Southern women in a celebration of life, laughter and love.  The chemistry of the all-star ensemble creates movie magic – a beautiful, emotional alchemy that is heartwarming and life-affirming even as it wrings tears from its audience. The title itself refers to the contrasts embodied by its complex protagonists – each of whom is as strong as steel and as delicate as a magnolia.
