Event Details

August 28th, The Backlot Cinema presents CRY BABY (1990).
This musical-comedy romp through 1950’s teen-angst is an energetic celebration of non-conformity from John Waters, the unequivocal master of bad taste. Johnny Depp stars as a leather-clad bad boy whose ability to shed a single, solitary tear drives good girls wild.

“There’s no social ideology at which Cry-Baby doesn’t take aim: the beauty myth, the nuclear family, class structure, the cult of celebrity.”- Vice

“Waters’ finest film to date, seriously sexy stuff.” -Time Out London

Picture a picnic under the stars with your friends where you are entertained by innovative cinema projected on a big outdoor screen. The program celebrates cinema past and present, both popular and experimental, highlighting diverse creative voices from around the world. Space is limited and advanced booking encouraged!
