Attention: hair hoppers, checkerboard chicks and teenage Jezebels! Join us for this special Late Night screening of Hairspray.

It's Baltimore, 1962, and a rebellious teenager with the biggest bouffant on the block attempts to win the coveted 'Miss Auto Show' crown as she fights against racial discrimination.

John Waters' much-loved hit Hairspray is screening at GFT to celebrate its 35th anniversary. Known for his shocking, outrageous cult comedies, Waters surprised fans with this family-friendly classic – but remained true to his roots, setting the film in his hometown of Baltimore and casting a wildly entertaining line up of Ricky Lake, Jerry Stiller, Debbie Harry and Water's long-time muse, Divine.
