Queer Horror: Death Becomes Her

  • Hollywood Theatre 4122 Northeast Sandy Boulevard Portland, OR, 97212 United States (map)

Portland Chapter members RSVP here.

Queer Horror creeps closer to immortality with DEATH BECOMES HER! Hosted by Portland’s premier drag clown Carla Rossi, this 35mm screening continues a year of women-centric programming and opens with a diva duel between Carla and Portland’s dame of dance & drag, Pepper Pepper!


Lifelong Hollywood rivals Madeline Ashton (Meryl Streep) and Helen Sharp (Goldie Hawn) become immortal frenemies after they acquire an elixir of youth kept by the mysterious Lisle von Rhoman (Isabella Rossellini). Unfortunately everlasting youth – and Madeline and Helen’s feud – survives well after their pulses cease. Also featuring Demi Moore’s ex-husband Bruce Willis, DEATH BECOMES HER is jam-packed with breakthrough effects, iconic one-liners, and legendary performances that cement its status as a camp classic for an eternity to come. Directed by Robert Zemeckis.

Tickets are $10 and can be purchased through the Hollywood Theatre. I've been to these events and they sell out fast!
