Dir. John Waters - 1970 - 96m - An ALIBI MIDNIGHT MOVIE MADNESS presentation - $8 general / $6 students with i.d.s
John Waters’ gloriously grotesque, unavailable-for-decades second feature comes to theaters at long last, replete with all manner of depravity, from robbery to murder to one of cinema’s most memorably blasphemous moments. Made on a shoestring budget in Baltimore, with Waters taking on nearly every technical task, this gleeful mockery of the peace-and-love ethos of its era features the Cavalcade of Perversion, a traveling show put on by a troupe of misfits whose shocking proclivities are topped only by those of their leader: the glammer-than-glam, larger-than-life Divine, who’s out for blood after discovering her lover’s affair. Starring Waters’ beloved regular cast the Dreamlanders (including David Lochary, Mary Vivian Pearce, Mink Stole, Edith Massey, and Cookie Mueller), Multiple Maniacs is an anarchist masterwork from an artist who has doggedly tested the limits of taste for decades.

AN ALIBI MIDNIGHT MOVIE MADNESS AND A MOM'S MATINEE SPECIAL!!
Count Dracula adjourns to Earth, accompanied by Frankenstein's Monster, the Wolfman, the Mummy, and the Gillman. The uglies are in search of a powerful amulet that will grant them power to rule the world. Our heroes - the Monster Squad (a group of pre-teens!) are the only ones daring to stand in their way! Like the GOONIES and THE LOST BOYS, this is a kid's movie at heart with some great special effects by the legendary Stan Winston!
