RRRONE NIGHT ONLY!

India. 2022. Directed by S.S. Rajamouli. Not Rated. (187 mins. with short intermission) in Telegu with English subtitles
Back on the big screen where it belongs for a one night only #encoRRRe, RRR is an exhilarating, action-packed spectacular mythologizing two real-life freedom fighters who helped lead India’s fight for independence from the British Raj, Komaram Bheem (N.T Rama Rao Jr., aka Jr NTR) and Alluri Sitarama Raju (Ram Charan). Set in the 1920s before their fight for India’s independence began, RRR imagines a fictional meeting between the two, set into motion when a young Gond girl is stolen from her village by British soldiers.
With a powerful message, staggeringly choreographed action sequences, and an all-timer of a musical number, RRR is sheer big-screen joy from start to finish, and audiences have one last chance to see it big and loud as intended.

In celebration of Pride 2022, an icon of queer cinema returns to the big screen. Resplendent in flamboyant ball gowns, looking down over the vast red Australian desert: for three showgirls (Terence Stamp, Hugo Weaving, and Guy Pearce) it was the dream of a lifetime, a four week cabaret engagement in Alice Springs. The problem is simply getting there intact, along with their battered, pink tour bus, Priscilla, Queen of the Desert. It’s not easy being a drag queen in the outback! With over-the-top, Academy Award-winning costume design and a fabulous soundtrack of camp classics including Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive” and ABBA’s “Mamma Mia,” THE ADVENTURES OF PRISCILLA, QUEEN OF THE DESERT is a hilarious, vivacious comedy that celebrates community.
