The Hollywood Theatre's bimonthly program 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 own grand dame of dance & drag, Kaj-anne Pepper!

Directed by Robert Zemeckis, 1992’s DEATH BECOMES HER turns lifelong Hollywood rivals Madeline Ashton (Meryl Streep) and Helen Sharp (Goldie Hawn) into 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.
