The festivities began at 7pm when Jennifer and I headed up to the mezzanine, where we had our fill of very tasty cocktails that were very strong and very tasty. Jennifer and I partied like rock stars, mingling with some the city's most famous drag queens. Soon the theatre let the crowd enter, and soon it was madness. At eight o'clock there wasn't an empty set in the house, and her Majesty Peaches Christ took the stage!

Even before the film's original release, there was so much controversy surrounding the film. It was the first to receive the new NC-17 rating. It would also be Berkley's chance to shed her good girl image she had while playing Jesse from the Saturday morning TV show SAVED BY THE BELL. The abundant nudity throughout the film had the censors rioting in the streets. So when the film opened on September 22, 1995, it was an immediate bomb. However, like a lot films, it was ahead of its time, and found new life as a cult classic, being shown at midnight shows all across America.
Another fantastic Peaches Christ show has come and gone! But don't you fret my friends! There's plenty more fun ahead! In fact, The next PC show will be on October 12th at the Castro, where she will be screening the 1992 Robert Zemeckis film DEATH BECOMES HER. So make sure you come check that show out!
