Ready for another fabulous late night cinematic extravaganza brought to you by our very own Miss Jaye and Champagne Dreams Productions? Yeah, we thought so.
The response to April’s Reefer Madness Double Feature was so fantastic that we’re doing it again – and we’re giving you two absolutely Divine cinematic treats! Coming to the Fire Hall Theatre on Friday, August 26, Janessa’s Midnight Movie Madness is making its triumphant return!
First up, starting at 10 pm will be the Documentary I am Divine!
This fascinating documentary explores the life of Glenn Milstead, known to most as his larger than life drag persona Divine! Learn about his early films with John Waters including the infamous Midnight Movie cult classic Pink Flamingos, his role in the breakout hit Hairspray (which was later turned into a musical and a film version of the musical), and his untimely death the night before he was to step into his highest profile role yet.
At midnight, we’ll show Female Trouble, one of Divine’s early film collabs with visionary director John Waters!
The torrid tale of teenage degenerate Dawn Davenport whose criminal spiral begins when she doesn’t get the cha-cha heels she wanted for Christmas.
In addition to the films themselves, there will once again be a variety of interactive audience activities, including games and prizes, live performances, and more! Admission is only $10, which includes both films and all of the extra goodness as well! Due to the deliciously scandalous nature of the films’ contents, no one under 18 will be admitted!
August is chock full of John Waters fabulousness – Miss Jaye will be appearing as Edna Turnblad in Hairspray at the Empire Theatre August 9-13 and 16-20, and then this Divine Double Feature will round out the month. Plus, this event will be an official part of Grand Forks Pride!
So polish up your cha-cha heels and get ready for late night shenanigans as Miss Jaye, Champagne Dreams Productions, and Syn-Ful Productions bring you an unforgettable evening of filth, depravity, and gloriously filthy fun!
