Mon, May 13 at 8:00pm: Introduction from musical artist and DJ Amy Darling | BUY TICKETS

This intimate documentary reveals the story of a fierce rock ‘n’ roller, actress, muse and mother who rose to prominence in the 1960s and 1970s. Using the words of her unpublished memoir, Anita brings us deep into her world, with the help of a supporting cast that includes her family — Marlon, Angela, and their father Keith Richards. Never-seen-before home movies and family photographs show life with the Rolling Stones. This is a bittersweet tale of adventure and misadventure — from Barbarella to the Swiss Alps, and the Lower East Side of New York, Anita Pallenberg was a woman ahead of her time. (Synopsis from the Cannes International Film Festival 2023)

“ANITA benefits from a surprisingly rich archive. Way more footage of Pallenberg exists than one might have thought possible, even from times when she was living in rural areas of Switzerland or upstate New York while Richards toured. Scarlett Johansson wisely avoids trying to imitate Pallenberg’s accent, which would have been distracting. It’s a bravura voiceover, a real acting performance (on par with her work in HER) and it draws us deeply into Anita’s point of view on heady and tumultuous times.” —Matthew Carey, Deadline

“‘My motto was forward, forward forward, never look back’ Pallenberg says…. That line captures the life force and ‘sparkle’ of this singular figure of that storied time. But it also hints at the self-absorption that fed her addictive personality, a life lived without repentance but also without much in the way of self-reflection.” —Roger Moore, Movie Nation
