Visiting Artist

If anybody needs to make a call, I’ve got a phone!

Two valley girl besties get a big wake up call when they’re invited to their 10 year high school reunion and realize their lives aren’t as exciting and impressive as they thought they were. The remedy? Why not PRETEND to be successful career women? It’s as easy as sewing together a business suit, hustling a rental car, and driving to Tuscon in this pop cultural staple that celebrates the silly goosery of a best friendship.

About this series:

Obsessed with cult cinema but lack an altar to worship at? Have you ever cried out “If anybody needs to make a call, I’ve got a phone!” – only for others to think you’ve gone cuckoo bananas? Would the image of Cher blown up over a 50ft screen absolutely shock and delight you? Seattle drag superstar Monday Mourning feels the same exact way, and is ready to take our divine fixations to new and exciting heights by joining forces with Northwest Film Forum to bring you MOURNING SICKNESS: a quarterly showcase of essential cult & camp classics dusted off and brought back to life once more across the silver screen, featuring pre-show drag entertainment that will leave you looking camp right in the eye.

Showing up in your best “Versayce” is encouraged, and devotion to the silver screen is an absolute requirement.

Turn off your brains, grab some popcorn and enjoy the sickness – it’s showtime!
