John Waters's 'Polyester'

This event is in the past
Thurs Sept 19, 2019, 8 pm
Central Cinema Central District (Seattle)
Originally released in 1981, Polyester is John Waters and Co.'s first studio picture, and it's chaotic and thrilling to watch Waters get ahold of a bigger budget. The film straddles the line between contemporary Waters and classic Waters, and it's a sweet spot that's pure, filthy magic. Waters hires Tab Hunter, a certified movie star, to star alongside Divine, a certified monster—a dream come true for Divine, who worshipped Hunter as a kid. This pairing is one of the greatest accomplishments of the 20th century, right up there with landing on the moon by Chase Burns
