The worst film ever made or greatest camp classic of all time?
Join Manchester's big queer film club Make A Scene for a quote-a-long all-singing all-dancing, way-too-interactive screening of Showgirls IN A CASINO!
Yes you can play real black jack, roulette or even go on the slot machines before we welcome you into a private room where you'll join like minded pleasure seekers for an immersive screening of Paul Verhoeven's 1993 classic film.
Your hosts for the evening? Why Crystal Connors and Nomi Malone themselves as played by Manchester queer icons Grace Oni Smith and, for one night only, the fascinating multitalents of the one, the only, the elusive JOE SPENCER!
Cocktails, gambling, pole dancing demos, audience interaction, quoting along with the film, really hard dance routines, exploding volcanos, deception...this film party has everything! You've never seen Showgirls like this!
Access to the casino is available before and after the film so come early for a drink and to try the games.
You need ID to be allowed into the venue. NO ID NO ADMITTANCE AND NO REFUND.
The venue has a smart casual dresscode - no sportsgear etc.
Drag is encouraged as is dressing up in your finest casino wear but please do not cover your face with masks etc as the venue needs to see faces for security purposes. Please keep your breast and genitals in your outfits! No nudity!
ADULTS ONLY!! The film itself includes nudity and is 18 rated so no under 18s.
The drag show will include flashing lights, trecherous showgirls, pole dance demos and hilarious burlesque performances - but our girls are virgins so strictly no touching!
Doors into the screening room open at 22.00
Pre-show from 22.15
Film from 22.30
There will be intervals throughout
Event ends by 10pm but please stick around to play the games in the casino, drink at the bar, get some food at James Martin restaurant and explore Manchester235
