John Waters to perform at historic Carolina Theatre
GREENSBORO, NC — Whether one likes or dislikes the films of trash cinema pioneer John Waters, few can argue that he is an interesting figure in the world of cinema.
On Sept. 22, Waters will perform a one-man show about his origins in the trash cinema genre at the historic Carolina Theatre in downtown Greensboro.
Though the Carolina Theatre does not show films on a regular basis as it once did, it has to be considered a renovation success story as it almost burned to the ground some 25 years ago. Today it is the oldest active cinema in Greensboro.
The cinema is also screening Elia Kazan’s masterpiece “On the Waterfront” on Sept. 11.
The address of the Carolina Theatre is 310 South Green Street. The phone number for the theatre is 336-333-2605. Their web site is located here.
I have an entry about the Waters show on my blog.
I am happy to also report that the midnight screening of “The Goonies” at the Grandin Theatre in Roanoke, Va., which I mentioned last month, was a great success. I was told that some people came from as far away as the DC suburbs, some four hours away, to see the film.
