The New Orleans Museum of Art presents two screenings of director John Waters’ camp classic.

In conjunction with “Pride of Place: The Making of Contemporary Art in New Orleans,” the New Orleans Museum of Art (NOMA) screens director John Waters’ Pink Flamingos (1972). The dark comedy stars the drag queen Divine as Babs Johnson, the self-proclaimed “filthiest person alive,” who runs into trouble when two criminals try to take her title.

The film screens twice—at 7 pm and 9 pm. Tickets are $12, and admission is free to NOMA members. Because of Pink Flamingos’ NC-17 rating, no one under the age of 18 will be allowed entrance to the film. For more information, visit NOMA’s website.

And before the film, don’t miss a talk with New Orleans-based artist Bob Snead—part of the museum’s regular Friday Nights at NOMA programs.
