Members’ Movie Night: Hairspray

On Wednesday August 21, 2013 at 8:00 pm in Dryden Theatre


Members are invited to a free movie once a month, chosen by our curatorial staff. This month, it's Hairspray (John Waters, US 1988, 92 min., 35mm).

Baltimore teen Tracy Turnblad (Ricki Lake) is a self-professed “pleasantly plump” high-schooler who wins a spot on a local (and segregated) television dance show, infuriating rich rival Amber von Tussle. Tracy’s confidence and popularity grow, and as she makes plans to integrate the program, the von Tussles scheme to marginalize her in order to maintain the status quo. A joyous, irrepressible movie, Hairspray tackles the burgeoning revolutions of the 1960s in a way that could have come only from the mind of John Waters.
