What if you were an American teenager who never knew your father? But your father was actually Lord Henry Dashwood (Oscar-winner Colin Firth), a British Lord with ambitions to become Prime Minister? That’s what happens to Amanda Bynes when she travels to London Town, and she finds herself amidst snooty aristocrats, British tabloids, and Britpop rockers. There are shopping montages! There are questionable stand-ins for Prince Andrew and Harry! Colin Firth dances in leather pants!

We’re stoked to announce a new event series for this year called Penguin Teen Screen. What’s better than reading a YA book? Watching a classic teen movie, (more…)


Penguin Teen Screen invites you to celebrate Katharine McGee’s bestselling YA novel, AMERICAN ROYALS, with the biggest British-American dust-up since The War of 1812: 2003’s WHAT A GIRL WANTS!

Harken back to a time before Brexit: hosted by Anne Thériault (@anne_theriault), follow along with @PenguinTeenCA and the #RevueTweetalong hashtag. We will be starting the movie on Netflix (or feel free to use a VHS copy, if you’ve got one) promptly at 7:00pm EDT.

Throughout the evening, we’ll be encouraging donations to the Revue Cinema, our home away from home when we’re not staying home.

We understand this is a difficult time and that is why our special event programmers are providing our fans with some much needed entertainment by hosting live tweet-a-longs! Join in on the fun!
Follow along at twitter.com/revuecinema and use the hashtag: #revuetweetalong

See you across the virtual pond on May 1!


All online events are by donation. Please note the proceeds will be going to The Revue Cinema to our programming team that are affected by our temporary closure.
