It's no secret that here at Amoeba we love, love, love us some Showgirls! I'm talking about Paul Verhoeven's inimitable 1995 stripper dance flick starring Elizabeth Berkley, Kyle MacLachlan, and Gina Gershon. I mean, what's not to love? It's a marvelously shot Sin City fable penned by Joe Eszterhas (the mind behind Flashdance and Basic Instinct) about a transient whore dancer with killer nail art skills, a tendency to flail wildly when it comes to food or sex, and a dream of making it big in showbiz. As the story goes, they could have brought anyone aboard this shamelessly camp-tacular cheesewagon: Janet Jackson, Paula Abdul... Nomi Malone is what Las Vegas is all about, and she is the reason I try to celebrate her "uhhh, seven, three...seventy-three" birthday every year with a never "too old for that whorey look" home screening party. This doesn't dissuade me from attending local annual viewing events of course; San Francisco has a rich history of homage when it comes to showing Showgirls.

Showgirls is an MGM release that tells the classic story of a young woman, Nomi Malone (Elizabeth Berkely), who dreams of being a dancer under the bright lights of the Las Vegas skyline. Catching the glittery eye of Stardust Casino’s showgirl, superstar Cristal Conners (Gina Gershon), Nomi sees an opportunity for her desire to become real.

The show runs 90 minutes, with the Either Edie Costume Contest to follow, hosted by Peaches Christ and judged by Jinkx Monsoon.
