FACE/OFF (1997)

DRAG ME TO THE MOVIES is a recurring screening series hosted by award-winning queer artist + curator Weird Alice. This series highlights films across multiple genres with a lens firmly focused on camp, queer stories, the tragically ludicrous and the ludicrously tragic. Each edition is paired with a different queer artist appearing live with pre-show performances and other out of the box interactive features to make cinema-going a unique and exciting experience.

IN ORDER TO CATCH HIM, HE MUST BECOME HIM. Drag Me To The Movies is kicking off the summer with their best faces forward! Join mortal enemies Weird Alice and Pansy Chisk as they celebrate John Woo's 1997 action thriller starring John Travolta and Nicolas Cage. Get ready to FACE/OFF!

Obsessed with bringing terrorist Castor Troy (Nicolas Cage) to justice, FBI agent Sean Archer (John Travolta) tracks down Troy, who has boarded a plane in Los Angeles. After the plane crashes and Troy is severely injured, possibly dead, Archer undergoes surgery to remove his face and replace it with Troy's. As Archer tries to use his disguise to elicit information about a bomb from Troy's brother, Troy awakes from a coma and forces the doctor who performed the surgery to give him Archer's face.
