Screening to celebrate ‘Hairspray’ film anniversary
John Waters' 1988 film Hairspray will be screened in Grand Park in Los Angeles on Friday, June 21 in recognition of the cult classic’s 25th anniversary.
Co-presented by the Los Angeles Film Festival and Dance Camera West, the free event will also include dance lessons led by LA-based Contra-Tiempo. Officials encourage guests to wear their best poodle skirt, show-off their puffiest bouffant and bring their most outrageous 60's moves.
Set in 1962, Hairspray is about a self-proclaimed "pleasantly plump" teenager, Tracy Turnblad, that pursues stardom as a dancer on a local TV show.
