In celebration of The Hollywood Theatre's Feminist March programming, the bimonthly series Queer Horror adds a special off-month screening to its calendar with 1975’s THE STEPFORD WIVES! Sponsored by Double Mountain Brewery & Taproom and Finger Bang Portland, this rare 35mm presentation is hosted by Portland’s premier drag clown Carla Rossi with a preshow starring Portland’s own 1950s drag housewife, Madame DuMoore (Daniel Pulver)!

Adapted from Ira Levin’s classic thriller, THE STEPFORD WIVES follows photographer Joanna Eberhart (Katharine Ross) as she moves with her husband and children to a quiet suburban community in Connecticut. But something strange is happening in the town of Stepford, where the local women have replaced their careers and ambitions with cooking and cleaning – at least ever since the town’s defunct women’s group was visited by Betty Friedan – and Joanna and fellow newcomer Bobbie (Paula Prentiss) find themselves in a race against time to learn what lurks behind the walls of the Stepford Men’s Association. Derided upon its release for being both too “anti-men” and “a rip-off of the women’s movement,” this incisive and ahead-of-its-time satire is more relevant, hilarious, and terrifying than ever before.

Friday, March 15 at 8 PM | $10

ABOUT QUEER HORROR:

QUEER HORROR is a bimonthly festival of genre works by queer artists, performers, and filmmakers questioning horror’s relation to queerness and what it means to identify with the monster. Maybe it’s the fact that queer people are so often relegated to shadows of otherness that the horror genre is more immediately relatable for us. We grew up with boogeymen. We’ve lived with boogeymen. Goblins and ghosts are a welcome escape from real-life monstrosities.

From the work of James Whale and John Waters to Patricia Highsmith and Clive Barker, horror has deeply impacted queer culture and sensibilities and QUEER HORROR asks why. QUEER HORROR is programmed and hosted by Portland’s premier drag clown Carla Rossi and her human avatar Anthony Hudson, with artwork by resident artist Jason Edward Davis.
