The Adventures Of Priscilla, Queen Of The Desert

SUPPORT

Celebrate Pride Month with a fabulous free screening of the Oscar-winning Aussie classic, The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert!
When drag queen Anthony/Mitzi (Hugo Weaving) agrees to take his act on the road, he invites fellow performer Adam/Felicia (Guy Pearce) and friend Bernadette (Terence Stamp) to come along. In their colorful bus, which Mitzi christens “Priscilla,” the three performers travel across the Australian desert performing for enthusiastic crowds and homophobic locals.
But when the other two performers learn the truth about why Anthony took the job, it turns their lives around and threatens their act and their friendship. Featuring stunning Australian landscapes, offbeat Aussie humor, an electric, booty-shaking 1970’s soundtrack packed with hits by Abba, Gloria Gaynor and the Village People, and unforgettable, over-the-top, Oscar-winning costumes by Tim Chappel and Lizzy Gardiner, The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert is a true landmark in the history of LGBTQ cinema, managing to expertly address themes of identity, gender, aging, homophobia, and family, while simultaneously delivering side-splitting laughs with its brilliant, often shockingly irreverent, screenplay. A truly fabulous, “tack-o-rama” classic! (Dir. by Stephan Elliot, 1994, Australia, in English, 104 mins., Rated R)
