April 26th: Turning Red

The 2023 PROXY Spring Series of outdoor cinema continues on Friday, April 26th at 7:00PM- 10:00PM at the PROXY Community Walk-in Theater with:

Turning Red

Directed by Domee Shi, 2022 [PG]


Turning Red flickers with a bright feminine spirit, one that feels new, crimson-deep and unapologetically rebellious.” Tomris Laffly  Roger Ebert


Trying to juggle her burgeoning independence and her family’s high expectations is about to become even more complicated when 13-year-old high-achiever Mei Lee makes an eye-opening discovery. As her hyperactive teenage hormones kick in, Mei’s emotions also take on a life of their own: whenever she gets too stressed or excited, a strange, radical metamorphosis springing from her mother’s maternal lineage is triggered. How can Mei Lee endure the growing pains of growing up without turning red?
