Rebel Reel Cine Club x Rio Cinema present John Waters’ POLYESTER presented in gloriously stinky Odorama™ plus a specially recorded message from John himself (pre-film…)
DJ Martin Green will be spinning filthy degenerate tunes in the lobby from 9.30pm and after the film – so stick around!
For his first studio picture, filth maestro John Waters took advantage of his biggest budget yet to allow his muse Divine to sink his teeth into a role unlike any he had played before: Baltimore housewife Francine Fishpaw, a heroine worthy of a Douglas Sirk melodrama.
Blessed with a keen sense of smell and cursed with a philandering pornographer husband, a parasitic mother, and a pair of delinquent children, the long-suffering Francine turns to the bottle as her life falls apart—until deliverance appears in the form of a hunk named Todd Tomorrow (vintage heartthrob Tab Hunter).
Enhanced with Odorama™ technology that enables you to scratch and sniff along with Francine, POLYESTER is one of Waters’ most hilarious inventions, replete with stomach-churning smells, sadistic nuns, AA meetings, and foot stomping galore.
- DRESS UP as lowlife trash or a right wing moral crusader!
- PLUS giveaway prizes!
- Doors to cinema open 11pm
POLYESTER dir John Waters, 1981 + Intro + DJ Martin Green + Odorama™ (05 AUG 23:30), booking now!
