Betty White is turning 100 and you’re invited to the party
Los Angeles, California — It's the event of the century! Golden Girls actor and national treasure Betty White is turning 100 next month, and she’s inviting everyone to her party. Everyone who buys a ticket, that is.
Tickets are now available for Betty White: 100 Years Young – A Birthday Celebration, a movie event that will screen nationwide on January 17, when the onetime Golden Girl hits the century mark.
"The party awaits," the film's ticket retailer said.
It "offers a revealing glimpse into her life — behind-the-scenes on set, working with her office staff, entertaining at home, lending her voice as an animal advocate," according to a press release, and includes her "actual birthday party," where she marks the milestone with celebrity friends.
Betty White: 100 Years Young will screen in almost 900 movie theaters nationwide at 1 PM and 7 PM local time on January 17. Tickets can be purchased online or at participating theater box offices.
The movie is billed as a star-studded event, with guests including her The Proposal co-star Ryan Reynolds, Tina Fey, Robert Redford, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Clint Eastwood, Morgan Freeman, Jay Leno, Carol Burnett, Craig Ferguson, Jimmy Kimmel, Valerie Bertinelli, James Corden, Wendy Malick, and Jennifer Love Hewitt.
As fans await the turn of White’s personal odometer, and perhaps make plans to celebrate it in a movie theater, some life advice she offered in 2017 still holds today.
"Don’t focus everything on you," White told Katic Couric. "That wears out pretty fast. It’s not hard to find things you’re interested in. Enjoy them. Indulge them."
Plenty of Betty fans will surely be indulging at the movie theater next month.
