The Adventures of Priscilla Added to Movies Under the Stars Lineup for Pride Month - June 23, 8:30pm, Maxwell Park
In recognition of Pride Month, Mayor Dawn Zimmer and the City of Hoboken are pleased to announce the addition of the Academy Award-winning film The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, to the 2017 Movies Under the Stars lineup. The movie will be screened the evening of Friday, June 23rd at 8:30pm at Maxwell Park. Admission is free of charge. Please note that parking is prohibited on Sinatra Drive North between Sinatra Drive and 12th Street. The full Movies Under the Stars lineup is available at www.hobokennj.gov/departments/human-services/cultural-affairs/movies-under-the-stars/ The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert The usually menacing British actor Terence Stamp does a complete turnaround as Bernadette, an aging transsexual who tours the backwaters of Australia with her stage partners, Mitzi (Hugo Weaving) and Adam/Felicia (Guy Pearce). Their act, well-known in Sydney, involves wearing lots of makeup and gowns and lip-synching to records, but Bernadette is getting a bit tired of it all and is also haunted by the bizarre death of an old loved one. Nevertheless, when Mitzi and Felicia get an offer to perform in the remote town of Alice Springs at a casino, Bernadette decides to tag along. 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.
