From May 10th - 18th The historic Paradise Theatre presents FLURRY OF FILTH: A John Waters Retrospective- spanning 35 years of artistic output from the Pope of Trash himself. This week-long descent into celluloid atrocities is presented by Weird Alice of Drag Me to the Movies.

It stinks! It stinks! It stinks! It’s utterly scent-sational! It’s POLYESTER (1981), brought to you in stunning ODORAMA*.

*ODORAMA is a patented scratch-and-sniff technology that allows you to smell what the characters on screen are smelling, and we have procured the cards for you to sniff along with the film and take home as a keepsake!Join us on Thursday May 16th for a double-bill tribute to life on the silver screen to life on the silver screen by way of John Waters. We’ll be ending the night with this special interactive (by way of your nose) showing, and we have a feeling you’ll be smelling more than just delicious popcorn.

Suburban housewife Francine Fishpaw (Divine)’s world falls apart when her pornographer husband admits he’s serially unfaithful to her, her daughter gets pregnant, and her son is suspected of being the Baltimore Foot Stomper - a foot-fetishist who’s been breaking local women’s feet. In her attempt to make sense of her crumbling life, she picks up a whirlwind romance with heartthrob Todd Tomorrow (Tab Hunter).

Thursday May 16th, 8:30 PM/8 PM Doors

General Admission $12.50 HST + eventbrite fees | Door Entry $15.00 + HST
