She's the perfect all-American parent: a great cook and homemaker, a devoted recycler, and a woman who'll literally kill to keep her children happy. A special 30th Anniversary Screening of the 1994 cult classic with a live intro by John Waters!

Director John Waters puts a twist on the everyday mediocrity of suburban life in the domestically devious SERIAL MOM. See Kathleen Turner like never before as Beverly Sutphin, the seemingly perfect homemaker who will stop at nothing to rid the neighborhood of anyone failing to live up to her moral code. It's a killer comedy that will take you over the edge with laughter.

$12 General / $10 for members, students & seniors (multi-packs & festival passes can also be used)
Tickets can also be bought as part of a package to see JOHN WATERS: DEVIL'S ADVOCATE ($80 VIP or $60 Regular)

press for Serial Mom: 30Th Anniversary

"A loose remake of FEMALE TROUBLE with Polyester's subversively accessible polish, SERIAL MOM is the strongest film of the post-midnight-movie chapter of John Waters's career"
- Slant Magazine
"Sharply funny, wonderfully snarky, and a better satire of our true crime obsession than most anything this century—it remains a prescient, properly fun film without compare."
- The Stranger
