Queer Horror: Addams Family Values

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

The Hollywood Theatre's bimonthly program QUEER HORROR breaks from its regular schedule for this special seasonal screening of 1993’s ADDAMS FAMILY VALUES in 35mm! Hosted by Portland’s premier drag clown Carla Rossi, this Thanksgiving edition opens with a flaming Camp Chippewa pre-show starring Portland’s favorite turkey-basted queens!

Directed by Barry Sonnenfield, Adams Family Values picks up as a mustachioed baby Addams is born, Wednesday and Pugsley head off to summer camp, and Uncle Fester falls for a black widow killer looking for love and a Ballerina Barbie. Written by out screenwriter Paul Rudnick with music by Marc Shaiman (Hairspray) and starring queer icons Anjelica Huston, Christina Ricci, Carol Kane, Christine Baranski, Dana Ivey, and the incomparable Joan Cusack as Debbie, ADDAMS FAMILY VALUES turns the family film on its (severed) head like only the Addams clan can.
