The V.J. Wilkins Family Center for the Arts will be host to its first “Girly Night” next Friday.

This event will feature a showing of “Steel Magnolias,” a 1989 classic starring Sally Field, Dolly Parton, Shirley MacLaine, Daryl Hannah, Julia Roberts and Sam Shepard.

The women in the movie bond as time passes and they experience life together.

Tickets to Girly Night are $20 each, which include entrance to the film, a glass of wine, cheese and crackers, and a round of special “Steel Magnolias” trivia.

The event begins at 7 p.m. Sept. 8 at the historic Burford Theatre, located at 118 S. Summit St.
