Looking ahead for things to do NEXT weekend?
Do you think you’ll be sufficiently recovered from THIS weekend? Or, too broke to go out?
Fortunately, Three Dollar Bill Cinema and the Museum of Pop Culture have a solution…they’re throwing a QUEER MONSTER BALL on Friday, July 1st! It’s to celebrate the end of Three Dollar Bill curating their movie screenings for the last few weeks. AND, you’re encouraged to wear costumes…it’s HALLOWEEN IN JULY!
It’s happening from 7pm to 10pm at MoPop….sadly, it’s a 21+ event. And, apparently, it’s FREE, according to the Facebook invite. (NOTE: we double checked…admission into MoPop is FREE after 7pm!!!!)
Here’s all the info provided by Three Dollar Bill Cinema:
We’re so grateful to have curated and screened a queer horror short film program for the past 3 months at MoPOP’s Sound & Vision Theater. Thank you to all our donors and supporters that make our programming possible. To commemorate the end of our MoPOP residency on June 30th and pass the baton to Langston Seattle, you’re invited to QUEER MONSTER BALL!
Celebrate Halloween in July with us at MoPOP on July 1st! Join us from 7-10 PM for a FREE night of drinks, snacks, fun, and dancing. Don’t forget to dress up in your queer monster finery. Think Halloween but Pride!
Featuring performances by Seattle’s current reigning Queer Monarch, Judas Saint James!
Judas Saint James is your new favorite queer-coded villain. Blending the worlds of rock n roll, kink, theater, and nostalgia, they aim to show you the beauty of alternative Black culture and the pleasures of nonbinary sensuality.
With a deadly gaze and sinister smile, they are sure to leave you salivating, questioning, and wanting more.
