This showtime is now SOLD OUT. Please note that we will not be selling any tickets at the door for this screening.

John Waters, Baltimore’s Prince of Puke, returns for another riotously anarchic and decadently disgusting blast of scuzz. Divine plays Dawn Davenport, a delinquent bad-girl on a perverse path to Female Trouble in this epic ode to crime and beauty that tackles all the taboos, from pregnancy and prostitution to capital punishment and cha-cha heels.

“Where do these people come from? Where do they go when the sun goes down? Isn’t there a law or something?” – Rex Reed

“The exuberance and energy of genius… Insanely logical, horribly funny.” – Interview Magazine

“The resulting feast of sex, violence, cruelty, and frivolity mocks sentimental notions of family, work, and love, and turns the egomaniacal furies of pop culture inside out.” – Richard Brody, New Yorker

Desperate Living (Sold Out)

This showtime is now SOLD OUT. Please note that we will not be selling any tickets at the door for this screening.

A deviously filth-filled revolt against public decency, John Waters’ deranged fairytale about Desperate Living goes gloriously off the deep end of bad taste. After murdering her husband, a hysterical housewife (Mink Stole!) and her maid accomplice go on the lam and find themselves exiled to Mortville, a deviant dystopia of social & sexual outcasts ruled by the twisted & tyrannical Queen Carlotta (Edith Massey!!). Water’s self-described “lesbian melodrama about revolution” is loud, rude, constantly quotable, politically subversive, and very, very funny. Plus, Liz Renay!

“Waters cultivates sleaze like a rare orchid… he is to Baltimore what Ingmar Bergman was to Sweden.” – Baltimore Sun

“You could look far and wide to find a more pointlessly ugly movie than John Waters’s Desperate Living, but why would you bother?” – Janet Maslin, The New York Times
