Two by John Waters [double feature]

HAIRSPRAY
1988, USA, 92 minutes, 35mm, New Line/Warner Bros.
Written and directed by John Waters
Starring Ricki Lake, Divine, Debbie Harry, Sonny Bono,
Jerry Stiller, Leslie Ann Powers, Colleen Fitzpatrick, Michael St. Gerard
Sun: 4:00 & 7:30 pm; Mon/Tue: 7:30 pm

"Thoroughly deserving of its cult status."
- Kim Newman, Empire Magazine

"When Divine's Edna Turnblad is on-screen in the sleeveless dresses she's partial to, the movie has something like the lunacy of a W. C. Fields in drag."
- Pauline Kael, New Yorker

"Not only Waters's best movie, but a crossover gesture that expands his appeal without compromising his vision one iota; Ricki Lake as the hefty young heroine is especially delightful."
- Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader

-----

PLUS, on the same program:

CRY-BABY
1990, USA, 85 minutes, 35mm, Universal
Written and directed by John Waters
Starring Johnny Depp, Amy Locane, Polly Bergen,
Susan Tyrrell, Iggy Pop, Ricki Lake, Traci Lords

"Waters' finest film to date, a worthy successor to Hairspray which exudes teen angst and young lust from every pore."
- Time Out

"Cheerfully camp, terrifically enjoyable teen parody that ranks among Waters' best moments. Oh, and world -- meet Johnny Depp!"
- Film4

"Great campy fun. How many tears will Johnny shed?"
- Cole Smithey
