Part of our Midnight Movies series!
This event will take place at the Vista Theatre (Los Angeles), located at 4473 Sunset Dr, Los Angeles, CA 90027.
In John Waters’ taboo-demolishing Pink Flamingos, drag goddess par excellence Divine showed us how to become the most notorious celebrity in the world! Here she’s on the lam as trailer trash crime queen Babs Johnson, who will stop at nothing to beat a competing couple and earn the crown of “Filthiest Person Alive.” Watch as Divine shoplifts, murders, and castrates her way into your heart! Gasp at Divine’s proto-punk sense of fashion! Marvel at her show-stopping finale with a canine co-star! If you still haven’t seen this all-time shock value champ on the big screen — with an appalled audience at your side — then you really haven’t lived at all.
Dir. John Waters, 1972, 35mm, 92 min.
