Divine evening for The Electric this September

The queen of shock was undoubtedly Divine, the drag legend immortalised in numerous John Waters films, and on Friday September 12th The Electric Cinema’s cult collective Shock & Gore celebrates her trash-tastic legacy with A Divine Evening, featuring screenings of two John Waters cult classics and a live drag queen compere.

Opening with the 1974 cult favourite ‘Female Trouble’, featuring Divine as troublemaker runaway Dawn Davenport, who ends up a fashion model for a pair of beauticians who photograph women whilst they commit crimes.

Then, after our compere will dishes out some acidic one liners, we launch into a rare Odorama screening of Waters’ 1981 comedy drama ‘Polyester’, starring Divine as an unhappy housewife dealing with a dysfunctional family, with each audience member given their very own scratch ‘n’ sniff card to use at specific points during the film.

The night begins at 8.30pm, prices ranging between £9.50 and £18.50.

Tickets can be purchased for this Divine evening from: www.theelectric.co.uk
