Female Trouble18

Directed by John Waters | USA | 1974 | 1h 29m | Starring Divine, David Lochary, Mary Vivian Pearce, Mink Stole, Edith Massey

The sordid life and times of Dawn Davenport unfold as she transforms from a rebellious teenager obsessed with getting cha-cha heels for Christmas into a fame-hungry monster driven by murderous impulses. Filmed in Baltimore on 16mm, with a cast drawn from his beloved troupe of regulars, John Waters’ follow-up to the notorious Pink Flamingos revels in the same grotesque glamour that made Waters and Divine revered transgressive voices on the midnight movie circuit.

Reviews

‘The resulting feast of sex, violence, cruelty, and frivolity mocks sentimental notions of family, work, and love, and turns the egomaniacal furies of pop culture inside out.’
Richard Brody, The New Yorker

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
