"★★★★ – Thoroughly deserving of its cult status" – Empire


★★★★ – The Times


John Waters (Pink Flamingos) is in the driving seat for this wild ride of this cult '80s comedy.


When teenager Tracy Turnblad (Ricki Lake) auditions for a dream spot as a regular on Corny Collins Dance Show, she sparks a rivalry with Amber von Tussle (Colleen Fitzpatrick).


The rivalry comes to a head as Amber and Tracy vie for the title of Miss Auto Show 1963, while Tracy pushes for more racial integration on the dance show.


Screening as part of our '80s season, coinciding with the brilliant I Grew Up 80s exhibition taking place at Leicester Museum & Art Gallery until the end of August.
