Cult icon John Waters’ body of work isn’t the most accessible, unless you know where to look. Thanks to a restoration and theatrical re-release by Janus Films, Multiple Maniacs is now as accessible as your friendly neighborhood Cine-Rama.
Released in New York on Aug. 5, Multiple Maniacs can be seen by Chattanooga Waters fans a day later.
“Restoration is an amazing thing,” Waters said in a release. “Finally, ‘Multiple Maniacs’ looks like a bad John Cassavetes film! I couldn’t be more thrilled!”
Multiple Maniacs stars Waters regular Devine as a the leader of a traveling freak show called the “Cavalcade of Perversion.” When the group of misfits gets bored, craziness ensues.
Tickets are $8; the film starts at 8pm
