Rating: 18

Australia 1994, 103mins

Join us to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the most fabulous Aussie road trip of all time! Glamourous X-Factor star Ginny Lemon will host the fabulous night of themed cocktails, a screening of the classic film followed by a special glam-off disco, where you’ll be joined by fans of Rocketman to dance the night away!

The usually menacing British actor Terence Stamp does a complete turnaround as Bernadette, an ageing transsexual who tours the backwaters of Australia with her stage partners, Mitzi (Hugo Weaving) and Adam/Felicia (Guy Pearce). The threesome ventures into the outback with Priscilla, a lavender-colored school bus that doubles as dressing room and home on the road. Along the way, the act encounters any number of strange characters, as well as incidents of homophobia, while Bernadette becomes increasingly concerned about the path her life has taken.

We'll have a live on-stage performance, themed cocktails and DJ Julz! That’s just what this country needs: a cock in a frock on a rock!
