Next up is The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert. It’s a must-see for lots of reasons – it won an oscar for costume design as well as 9 other awards including a BAFTA awards plus 18 nominations; more than that, we wanted to offer a movie that embraces difference and the outrageous (in the nicest possible way).  The film has had great reviews, scores 7.4 stars on IMDB and is a lot of fun. It’s a road movie too.

Men in feathers, what’s not to like? Cross-dressing? Well, it’s good enough for Eddie Izzard, though I have trouble with tights and my hairy legs! Terence Stamp is magnificently transgender; the costumes are amazing; and Hugo Weaving is as far from Elrond as it’s possible to get – or is it?. 

So come along to this one. If only for the spectacle. It’ll be a great night and you don’t have to dress up!

“Those who find men in feathers inherently divine will have a high old time here, and there are enough hilarious cinematic moments for the gob-smacked rest.”

Angie Errigo

*a note on tickets for 2019-2020 —

We’ve currently dispensed with ticketed entry for now. We found that most folk prefer to arrive on the night and just pay on the door. Having tickets for sale in advance would only be needed, we thought, when we could predict a big audience. Bohemian Rhapsody was a very special night and extremely well-attended. Normally, we reckon on a smaller audience that we can easily accommodate.

After our opening screenings earlier in the year, we’ve decided to set the entry price at £5. It works for us and for everyone else, we hope.
