Detroit Institute of Arts says
One of the most gifted actresses of our time, Detroit native and three-time Oscar® nominee Piper Laurie returns to her hometown to spend a very special evening to benefit the Detroit Film Theatre. Laurie will share moments from her life and career following a compilation of memorable on-screen moments. Tickets are $15.

Starting out in the early ‘50s in colorful costume pictures opposite the likes of Tony Curtis and Rock Hudson, Laurie soon moved on to acclaimed dramatic work during the “golden age” of live TV. In 1961 she received her first Academy Award® nomination as Paul Newman’s heartbreakingly vulnerable girlfriend in "The Hustler," and later garnered nominations as the terrifying mother of telekinetic prom queen Sissy Spacek in "Carrie" (1977). Her Golden Globe®-winning turn in David Lynch’s "Twin Peaks" won her a new generation of fans, and her 2011 memoir, "Learning to Live Out Loud," is a rich portrait of an amazing life.
