SATURDAY AUGUST 8 SPECIAL EVENT

Peaches Christ Productions Proudly Presents
The 18th Annual
SHOWGIRLS
Night of 1,000 Showgirls Returns

With Superstar Drag Queen ALASKA THUNDERF**K 5000
As always, FREE Lap-dances with every large popcorn
The Castro Theatre, Saturday August 8th @ 8pm

This summer marks Peaches Christ's 18th Annual summer screening of the best movie ever made and in honor of such an important anniversary, Peaches promises an XXX-tra special Goddess Spectacular pre-show celebration!

Peaches Christ wants you to dust off your glittery g-strings for a special one night, interactive presentation of"NIGHT OF 1,000 SHOWGIRLS" on AUGUST 8th, 2015 at the majestic CASTRO THEATRE in San Francisco with your hostess, Peaches Christ. The annual celebration of the seminal, "camp" classic will see Peaches and company kick off the night with the "Volcanic Goddess" pre-show with XXX-tra special additions celebrating this 18th Annual screening. This pre-show stars the now-legendary ALASKA THUNDERF**K 5000 in the part of Nomi Malone. This one-of-a-kind San Francisco experience begins at 8:00 p.m.

For those who can’t fathom the idea of eating brown rice and vegetables, grab that LARGE, buttery popcorn because with every salty purchase, "snack" obsessed audience members will receive a personalized lap dance by Peaches’ legion of live "dude-girls," to get you in the mood and make you feel like you’re back at the Cheetah strip lounge. As Peaches would say, "the show is about to begin", with her signature "FREE LAP-DANCES W/ EVERY LARGE POPCORN."

SHOWGIRLS (1995, Paul Verhoven) is an MGM release that tells the classic story of a young woman, Nomi Malone (Elizabeth Berkely), who dreams of being a dancer under the bright lights of the Las Vegas skyline. Catching the glittery eye of Stardust Casino’s showgirl, superstar Cristal Conners (Gina Gershon), Nomi sees an opportunity for her desire to become real. But there is only room for one star on the marquee as the battle of the showgirls begins.

Advance tickets are now on sale and further event details, additional cast-members, and more will be announced soon! Check back at peacheschrist.com for updates.

NO EXCHANGES OR REFUNDS WILL BE ALLOWED FOR THIS EVENT
