Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday, March 16-18, 2014:

Two by John Waters [double feature]

HAIRSPRAY
1988, USA, 92 minutes, 35mm, New Line/Warner Bros.
Written and directed by John Waters
Starring Ricki Lake, Divine, Debbie Harry, Sonny Bono,
Jerry Stiller, Leslie Ann Powers, Colleen Fitzpatrick, Michael St. Gerard
Sun: 4:00 & 7:30 pm; Mon/Tue: 7:30 pm

"Thoroughly deserving of its cult status."
- Kim Newman, Empire Magazine

"When Divine's Edna Turnblad is on-screen in the sleeveless dresses she's partial to, the movie has something like the lunacy of a W. C. Fields in drag."
- Pauline Kael, New Yorker

"Not only Waters's best movie, but a crossover gesture that expands his appeal without compromising his vision one iota; Ricki Lake as the hefty young heroine is especially delightful."
- Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader

-----

PLUS, on the same program:

CRY-BABY
1990, USA, 85 minutes, 35mm, Universal
Written and directed by John Waters
Starring Johnny Depp, Amy Locane, Polly Bergen,
Susan Tyrrell, Iggy Pop, Ricki Lake, Traci Lords
Sun: 5:45 & 9:15 pm; Mon/Tue: 9:15 pm

"Waters' finest film to date, a worthy successor to Hairspray which exudes teen angst and young lust from every pore."
- Time Out

"Cheerfully camp, terrifically enjoyable teen parody that ranks among Waters' best moments. Oh, and world -- meet Johnny Depp!"
- Film4

"Great campy fun. How many tears will Johnny shed?"
- Cole Smithey
