"Nine to Five is a delightful, lightweight farce."—John Lapsley, Sydney Morning Herald

"It's the chemistry among Tomlin, Parton, and Fonda that makes Nine to Five succeed beyond all expectations."—Jack Matthews, Detroit Free Press

"An entertaining 1980 revenge comedy, a zeitgeist hit upon its release."—J.R. Jones, Chicago Reader

This showing of 9 to 5 will include a post-screening discussion with panel guests to be announced.

In this witty, satirical farce, secretaries Dolly Parton, Jane Fonda, and office manager Lily Tomlin live every female worker's dream after discovering they share the same resentment towards their egotistical, sexist boss (Dabney Coleman). When they get an unexpected chance to take revenge, they turn their male-controlled workplace into a model office—even as their scheme spins wildly out of control.
