PART 1 OF OUR “THROWBACK THURSDAY” RETRO DOUBLE FEATURE with the JOHN WATERS CLASSIC, “MULTIPLE MANIACS” at 9:15!
One of the first gay-themed films ever to receive widespread theatrical release in North America, OUTRAGEOUS! is the story of hairdresser Robin Turner and his roommate, Liza, a schizophrenic who can no longer tolerate being institutionalized.
After Liza convinces Robin to attend a drag ball dressed as Tallulah Bankhead, he begins to feel liberated.
