Buy now for John Waters' film premiere at Senator


July 21, 2000

Tickets for the Hollywood-style opening of John Waters' new film, "Cecil B. Demented," scheduled for Aug. 2 at the Senator, go on sale today.

Filmed in Baltimore last year, "Cecil B. Demented" stars Stephen Dorff as the title character, a guerrilla filmmaker determined to make movies on his own terms, movies that not only buck the Hollywood system, but will lead to the destruction of Hollywood as we know it. Melanie Griffith plays a big-time star who is kidnapped by Demented and his merry band (dubbed the Sprocket Holes), locked away in the abandoned Hippodrome theater and forced to star in his latest movie.

The film also stars Ricki Lake, Alicia Witt and Patty Hearst. It opens in theaters Aug. 11.

Tickets for the Senator premiere are $75 and include a party afterward at the Lava Lounge. Proceeds will go to AIDS Action Baltimore.

For information, phone 410-837-3533.
