Time Travel Doorway with Woman standing in the doorwayMatinees May 12th & May 19th

In this thrilling time-travel comedy, three women attempt to save themselves and each other at the hands of the same man but in 3 different time periods.  In the present is a dominatrix who has been hired to witness a murder confession.  Twenty years earlier is the second wife of the tycoon, about to be murdered and 20 years before that is his first wife (also about to be murdered).  All that can prevent these events and re-shape their lives is the ingenuity of the 3 women (and a good bit of luck)!
