Series - Mourning Sickness

Visiting Artist
This sparkling, frilly musical and modern-day camp classic stars Cher (Mask, The Witches of Eastwick, Moonstruck) and Christina Aguilera (The Emoji Movie) as an archetypal starlet and ingenue pair. Ali (Christina) snags a one-way ticket out of her small town, on a straight shot to the big streets of Los Angeles, where she stumbles across a burlesque nightclub run by Tess (Cher). Her dreams of making it big finally become reality when Tess gives Ali a shot at the big time and invites her to join her cast after she proves her star power.

Presented to you live by sensational drag diva Miss Monday Mourning! Monday will open the show with live burlesque acts starring Willy Nilly and Ruby Mimosa, and then announce the winner of our audience costume contest (details below). The prize? A Mourning Sickness series pass! ð-ð

(Steve Antin, US, 2010, 119 min, in English)

Costume contest:
Hollywood premiere eleganza, your frilliest and sparkliest attire, red carpet divinity  sequins, lamé, organza, top hats and pearls.
Show up and show out  the silver screen calls for glamorous statements!
A top three will be hand-picked by Monday and brought to the front, where a winner will be declared. Good luck!

Ticketing, concessions, cinemas, restrooms, and our public edit lab are located on Northwest Film Forum's ground floor, which is wheelchair accessible. We have a limited number of assistive listening devices available for programs hosted in our larger theater, Cinema 1. These devices are maintained by the Technical Director, and can be requested at the ticketing and concessions counter. The Forum does NOT have assistive devices for the visually impaired, and is not (yet) a scent-free venue. Our commitment to increasing access for our audiences is ongoing, and we welcome all public input on the subject! If you have additional specific questions about accessibility at our venue, please contact our Executive Director Cara Mia Harris at caramia@nwfilmforum.org
