A John Waters Christmas: Holier and Dirtier
After five decades of teaching moviegoers what not to eat (Pink Flamingos), what not to wear (white shoes after Labor Day can get you killed by Serial Mom), and how to do the “Payton Place After Midnight” (Hairspray), Baltimore’s beloved “Pope of Trash” rides into town like Santa’s stylish, sleazy brother with a new collection of stories designed to help fans endure the holiday season. In his signature patter, the schlock-master spins tales of his Christmas obsessions, which range from an unhealthy fetishism for Santa Claus to an unholy desire to remake his own movies as seasonal films for kids (Kiddie Flamingos actually exists). He’ll also put his own spin on several yuletide traditions. Who else would view the ideal gift basket as full of “cigarettes, poppers, porno, and gun oil”?
When it opened in 1927, the Florida Theatre was the largest of 15 cinemas in downtown Jacksonville. Today, it's the city's last surviving vestige of that era's iconic architecture. Designed by New Yorker R.E. Hall and Jacksonvillian Roy Benjamin, the venue is a prime example of the Mediterranean Revival style, with a ceiling covered in glittering stars and a six-story proscenium arch. And even as the entertainment industry shifted towards television, the Florida Theatre survived by hosting interactive game nights and concerts from underground artists, including Elvis Presley. The space was renovated In the early 1980s, and today it returns to its entertaining roots by hosting live events and classic film screenings.
