Join us on the 25th Anniversary of The Adventures of Priscilla Queen of the Desert (15)Dir: Stephan Elliot | USA | 1994 | 104 mins Cast: Terence Stamp, Guy Pearce, Hugo WeavingStephan Elliots brash, liberating road movie follows two drag queens and a transgender woman (played by Hugo Weaving, Guy Pearce and Terence Stamp) as they journey across the desert from Sydney to Alice Springs, in a tour bus named Priscilla, to put on a show. Along the way, they encounter various people - including a group of Aboriginals, and less accepting rural Australians who subject them to homophobic abuse - share long-buried secrets, and experience the beauty of the remote Australian outback. Boisterous and bawdy, its also a very tender and generously entertaining film that heralded a new age in Australian cinema.Doors open at 7pm and the film starts at 8pm

Blacker than black Ealing comedy has a suave and sophisticated Price killing off an entire family tree (all played by Guinness) in order to move himself closer to the d'Ascoyne family title. Low-key cynicism and disarming callousness make it a true gem of British post-war cinema.
