A film by John Waters
Thursday December 19 at 7.30 pm. Golden Lion, 116 Sydenham Road SE26 5JX. Tickets: £5 on the door
The incomparable Divine stars in one of the best Christmas films ever made.
Directed by John “pope of trash” Waters and starring Mink Stole, David Lochary and Edith Massey, this camp critique of celebrity culture is the Dreamlanders at their best. There’s no better way to begin the festive season.
When juvenile delinquent Dawn Davenport (Divine) doesn’t get the Cha Cha heels she wants for Christmas she runs away, gets pregnant and, finally, finds the fame she has always desperately wanted – by going on a murderous rampage.
And to get you in the mood, there’ll also be free mince pies, festive treats and our friends at the Golden Lion have promised to get that mulled wine brewing

“High comedy. Divine is marvellously funny and John Waters is a very funny man…Female Trouble cannot be dismissed” NEW YORK TIMES
