CLASSIC FILMS AT THE TEMPLE: THE ADVENTURES OF PRISCILLA, QUEEN OF THE DESERT

Join us at the Temple of Music and Art this summer for a special film event! This June, we will once again be opening the Temple of Music and Art to screen two classic films.

You won’t want to miss this limited-time opportunity to escape the Tucson heat and enjoy these wonderful films on the big screen!

Join us on June 23 for the cult classic The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert (1994). The film follows two drag queens and a transgender woman as they journey across the Australian Outback from Sydney to Alice Springs in a tour bus that they named “Priscilla.” Along the way, they encounter various groups and individuals for adventures. The film won an Academy Award for Best Costume Design and subsequently provided the basis for the musical Priscilla, Queen of the Desert in 2006, which traveled to New Zealand, the United Kingdom, Canada, and Broadway. The film stars Hugo Weaving, Guy Pearce, and Terence Stamp.

The screening will be introduced and hosted by Tucson’s own Drag Diva Tempest DuJour!

The screening begins at 7:00 p.m.
Tickets are $10 and may be purchased at the door.
