Beauty is Embarrassing / Kitchenette Film Series
Due to concerns surrounding COVID-19, we will not be hosting Kitchen Stove at Landmark Cinemas for the Fall Season. Instead, we are offering a new film series at the Gallery focusing on films about artists and their lives. We hope you’ll join us in the Tea Room for our new Kitchenette Film Series!
Beauty is Embarrassing
Directed by Neil Berkeley
2012 / 93 minutes
Beauty Is Embarrassing is a funny, irreverent, joyful and inspiring documentary featuring the life and current times of one of America’s most important artists, Wayne White. He quickly found success as one of the creators of the TV show, Pee-wee’s Playhouse, which led to more work designing some of the most arresting and iconic images in pop culture. Acting as his own narrator, Wayne guides us through his life using moments from his latest creation: a hilarious, biographical one-man show.
At its core, Beauty Is Embarrassing is a reminder that we should all follow our passion. It is those creative impulses that will lead us to where we need to go.
