"Sing Out!" Hedwig and The Angry Inch- March 24th 2011

Wear it up- Let it down-This is the best way that I've found-to be the best you've ever seen."

Fleur de Lethal Cinematheque hosts it's 2nd Annual Sing Out! screening of this epic tale of lost love,
lost parts and the trans formative power of an amazing hair-do.

As always with FdL screenings,the movie is only half the show
and the night will also play host to a Costume Contest- So get out that blonde wig (or your butchers apron)
and glitter those eyelids for a chance to win cash and prizes.

From The Instigatrix: This screening is dedicated to everyone who has felt like they didn't fit in, were outcast or on the outside and found their salvation in singing, dancing and rock and roll.-NB

The "Sing Out" Series

With the rise of shows like GLEE and an ever increasing roster of musical titles being added to
Hollywood's production schedules it is safe to say- The Movie Musical is BACK.

The "Sing Out!" Series is a collection of music based films and musicals that though not
deemed a "sing a long" are certainly films we love to sing to.
Ridiculous,outlandish,lavish,lovely and not plausible-musicals ask us to suspend our disbelief
and embrace not the realities of life as it is but the fantasy of life as it could be
( and if you ask FdL curator Nico Bella "Life as it SHOULD be")

The 2011 Sing Out Calendar includes ,Singin' in The Rain,Grease 2,
The 4th Annual Moulin Rouge Spectacular Spectacle and many more...
These unique screenings encourage audience participation
So when you come out to a show dress up,dance,holler,laugh and most important- SING!
