Medusa Deluxe at Real Art Ways

Medusa Deluxe

“Medusa Deluxe is a fun and extravagant murder mystery that shines a light on the beauty of hairdressing whilst leaving audiences guessing in this quick-witted whodunit.” – Little White Lies 

“An extravagant, relentlessly propulsive, and wildly entertaining film, rich with provocative performances, jaw-dropping ambition, astounding visuals — both squalid and sublime — and a dizzying blend of dark humor and persistent empathy.” – Mashable 

“Proudly indelicate, painstakingly structured pleasure.” – New York Times 

“…ornate, effortful and niche, but oddly hard to take your eyes off.” – Financial Times

“One of the most extravagant one-offs in recent cinema.” – Screen Daily 


Talented, ambitious, and backstabbing hairstylists gather for a competition in England, only to find one of their own murdered before judging can begin. Winding through neon-lit halls and backstage dressing rooms, competitors unspool long-simmering resentments and secrets as they search for the killer among them, in this devilishly funny whodunit from debut filmmaker Thomas Hardiman.

CT Summer at the Museum

Real Art Ways was recently awarded a grant from Connecticut Humanities to support our participation in the CT Summer at the Museum initiative!

The program invites Connecticut children ages 18 and under plus one accompanying Connecticut resident adult to visit participating museums free of charge from July 1 through September 4, 2023. Tickets must be purchased in person at our cafe. Funding for the initiative is provided by the CT General Assembly, with the support of Connecticut Humanities and the Department of Economic and Community Development, Office of the Arts, which also receives support from the federal ARPA.
