Peaches Christ's Full Frontal Farewell
The Final Annual Screening
Castro Theatre
May 20th at 8 p.m.

As always, FREE lap-dances with every large corn! Featuring the best lap-dancers from the past twenty years.


All good things must come to an end — and for this show, it’s gonna be a happy ending.

After first putting Paul Verhoeven’s 1995 opus SHOWGIRLS on the map as a cult classic in 1997 with a midnight screening at the Bridge Theatre, Peaches Christ has celebrated it every single year since. Her unforgettable pre-shows have transformed from scrappy no-budget midnight spectacles into lavish, star-studded affairs at the Castro Theatre.

And while Peaches will continue celebrating Showgirls one way or another for the rest of her life, particularly as the acclaimed stage musical she directed last summer at the Victoria Theatre, this 20th annual celebration of the film will mark the end of an era: the final classic pre-show/screening presentation.

So dust off those glittery g-strings and come on down to the Castro Theatre on May 20 to bid farewell to this time-honored yet dishonorable San Francisco staple. Consider this extravaganza the final fondle, because we’re really blowing our load on it. And be prepared for a swarming barrage of legendary lap-dancers the likes of which you’ve never experienced before — or have tried very hard to forget.

Audiences are invited to make this sendoff especially trash-tastic by dressing up in their sluttiest Cheetah nighties or their finest Goddess sequined lewks. Because at the end of the day, they’re all just dancers! For those who can’t fathom the idea of eating brown rice and vegetables, grab that LARGE buttery popcorn at the concession stand — because with every salty purchase, audience members will receive a personalized lap dance by Peaches’ legion of live «dude-girls» to get you in the mood and make you feel like Cristal just paid your way into the champagne room.

And so, like Nomi and Cristal’s farewell hospital makeout session, let’s give this annual institution the big messy sticky finish it deserves. Whether you’ve been attending from the beginning or have been meaning to buy a ticket for years, this is your last chance to take part in this bona fide piece of San Francisco queer cultural history.
