New Trier High School and Actors Training Center alum Katie Chang returns to her roots June 17 for a hometown special screening of Sophia Coppola's latest film "The Bling Ring."
The event is a fundraising benefit for The Wilmette Theater, and kicks off at Gilson's Restaurant at 6:30 p.m. Tickets for the show are $75 and include an hour of cocktails and silent bidding on bling.
The film, based on a Vanity Fair article about a Los Angeles teen burglary ring, debuted at the Cannes Film Festival last month. Chang portrays the "blingleader" Rebecca, who scouts celebrity comings and goings with her crew so they can help themselves to their closets.
After the screening, Chang will sit for a Q&A.
