POLYESTER, 1981, Warner Bros., 86 min. Dir. John Waters

John Waters’ off-kilter riff on Douglas Sirk was his first film in 35mm and one of his best satires on family values. Waters regular Divine plays Francine Fishpaw, a housewife driven to alcoholism by her philandering husband, promiscuous daughter and foot-fetishist son. Her shot at redemption comes in the form of an unlikely romance with Todd Tomorrow (ex-teen idol Tab Hunter), the slick owner of an art-house drive-in.

FORMAT: 35mm

CRY-BABY, 1990, Universal, 84 min. Dir. John Waters

Eisenhower is President. Rock ‘n’ Roll is king. And Wade “Cry-Baby” Walker is the baddest hood in his high school. Johnny Depp heads up a supercool cast as the irresistible bad boy whose amazing ability to shed one single tear drives all the girls wild. It’s the hysterical high-throttle world of 1954 in director John Waters’ outrageous musical comedy. 

FORMAT: 35mm
