A generation ago, audiences thrilled for the first time at Stephen Elliott’s glorious tale of two drag queens and their trans leader on an epic journey across the Australian outback. Hugo Weaving, Guy Pearce and Terence Stamp give landmark performances in this tale of rampant fabulousness, as the trio take on small-town audiences during their tour.


The soundtrack is a camp queen’s wet dream of disco-era hits and the whole film has an irresistible energy. The jaw-dropping costume creations deservedly won an Academy Award for Best Costume Design, while the script delivers whip-sharp lines in a story that packs a powerful emotional punch. Showgirls, divas, disco queens, along with their fans, friends and followers, come along for a night of celebration with the volume turned up. Dressing-up is encouraged.
