Lots of options for lovers of videos and movies this week. We just posted about the FILMING of a new webseries which is happening tonight, but you can also go WATCH some awesome videos at Re-bar since it’s Collide-O-Scope night featuring an evening full of crazy/weird/zexy/adorable video from Michael & Shane from 7pm to 10pm. This week’s theme: WATCH THE SKIES so you can probably expect lots of weird sci fi shit…we’re crossing our fingers for a clip of Zsa Zsa Gabor in “Queen of Outer Space”. And, did Joey Heatherton or Connie Stevens do any sci fi? More finger crossing for that…
AND, we already talked about the big Sundance Cinemas Sneak Peek Party which is co-hosted by Three Dollar Bill Cinema and happening on Tuesday, July 16. For $15 you get nibbles, drinks and a chance to see a sneak preview of one of TEN movies that haven’t been released yet.

Three Dollar Bill is back on Friday night for the opening of their annual summer outdoor film screening series in Cal Anderson Park. This year’s theme is “I Need A Hero!” and the opening film is the beloved camp classic, HAIRSPRAY…and, we need to note that this is the ORIGINAL (and far superior) John Waters film with Ricki Lake and Divine and not the mediocre movie musical version with that awful girl and John Travolta. It starts at dusk (8:30pm ish) this coming Friday, July 19. It’s FREE and FUN for the entire FAMILY! (Unless you’re a nasty bigot like Penny Pingleton’s awful mother…) More poo on the event:
Look, up in the sky! It’s a small army of super iconic characters, swinging into action and coming to save your summer with FREE outdoor movies!
Three Dollar Bill Outdoor Cinema returns to Capitol Hill’s Cal Anderson Park with “I Need A Hero!” — four nights of action-packed fun!
Friday July 19 – HAIRSPRAY (1988)
Hair hoppin’, booty shakin’ Tracy Turnblad (Ricki Lake) is breaking all the rules for the better and making heroic strides for civil rights in this bouncy & beloved John Waters classic starring Divine and celebrating its 25th anniversary! (92 mins.)
“I Need A Hero!” continues on Friday August 2, (Galaxy Quest); August 9, (Batman: The Movie, the old 60s camp one with Adam West); and August 16, (Conan the Destroyer).
All screenings are FREE and begin at sunset (around 8:30/9pm) at the southeast corner of Capitol Hill’s Cal Anderson Park.
This is a smoke-free event. Bring low-backed chairs or blankets for seating, please.
Hot popcorn, cold drinks, candy and other concessions for sale on site. Limited lawnchair rentals available. Proceeds benefit Three Dollar Bill Cinema’s efforts throughout the year to provide voices and visibility for the LGBT community through film and video. More info at www.threedollarbillcinema.
With this much cinematic fun available, who the hell needs to go to the multiplex to see a stinker like The Lone Ranger? (WTF were they thinking? No one under the age of 6o gives a shit about The Lone Ranger…and, Johnny Depp needs to stop with the cartoon character performances. )
Oh, and a reminder that I AM DIVINE, the dreamy new documentary about the iconic actor, Divine, will be the opening night gala film for the Seattle Lesbian & Gay Film Festival on October 10, 2013. MARK THOSE CALENDARS!
