THE ADVENTURES OF PRISCILLA, QUEEN OF THE DESERT

THE ADVENTURES OF PRISCILLA, QUEEN OF THE DESERT, 1994, Park Circus/MGM, 98 min. Dir. Stephan Elliott.

Get on the bus. There is no better way to escape the bitterness of the moment than to experience the joy of lip-synching drag divas traveling across the Australian outback in a lavender bus. This movie was a surprise smash and a landmark of LGBT cinema. It buzzed to the stage as a fabulous musical and has toured the world building bridges and teaching love everywhere. Guy Pearce was a soap star in OZ when he jumped into the role as the wild and annoying Felicia. Hugo Weaving is moving as the errant dad, Tick. British icon Terence Stamp is a revelation as the bereaved trans woman Bernadette, who may have met the man of her dreams. Fun, fantastic and full of bubbly disco music. The show is stolen by Lizzy Gardiner and Tim Chappel, whose extraordinary costumes take flight - they won the Academy Award for Best Costume Design at the 67th Academy Awards, Best Costume at the British Academy of Film and BAFTA and Best Costume Design at the Australian Film Institute Awards. Mama Mia you’re in love again. No chaperones required. Poppers in the loo.

Program begins with a live recording of the Greg Proops Film Club podcast. Feature starts at 8:00 PM.
