Are you ready…for Purim PROMdemonium?

Posted on January 31, 2013 by

In just three weeks the Jewish Museum of Maryland will once again be hosting its annual Purim Pandemonium.

This year’s theme fuses nostalgia and fantasy:

Purim PROMdemonium: Prom on the Big Screen

Prom has become such an integral part of teenage life that movies about teenagers have been referencing it or focusing on it for decades.  Now is your chance to either relive your prom, live a better prom, or recreate your favorite Hollywood Prom moments.

But what are those Hollywood moments?

We’re taking a very broad view of Prom here, whether it’s the delightfully 80s Pretty in Pink or the much less delightful Carrie, from horror to romantic comedy to drama there’s so much to choose from.  We’re going to offer you a little costume inspiration here: movies about or including not only Prom but also homecoming.  After all the homecoming dance also holds a special place in teenage memory and movie magic history.

Pretty in Pink


She’s All That

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Quarterback Princess

Never Been Kissed

Prom Night (II, III, IV and the recent remake)

10 Things I Hate about you

Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion

Drive Me Crazy

American Pie

Cinderella Story


Valley Girl

Earth Angel

Back to the Future


And don’t forget the numerous Prom and Homecoming dance episodes of your favorite TV shows – there’s more than you might think. See our pinterest board for more inspiration!
